A Note from Susan
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am so happy to announce that we have a wonderful new 1st grade teacher to follow in Mrs. Langhus’ footsteps. She has a special endorsement from Mrs. Stephens, who worked with her for many years. I asked her to fill in a few details about herself and so without further ado…….
My name is Sara Dillon, and I am very excited to be joining the Madeleine School community. I have been a teacher at St. Agatha Catholic School for 12 years where I have "worn many hats," most recently teaching 4th grade. Working with children is such a joy; I am passionate about finding ways to engage young learners! My husband, Patrick, and I have two children: Jack, age 8 and Evelyn, age 5. We are parishioners at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church where I am a lector for the 5:00 Mass as well as a volunteer for the preschool Sunday school class. My family and I love going to Cannon Beach, working (and playing) in our garden at home, and hiking in the Gorge. We are thrilled to be traveling to Disneyland next month! I am looking forward to seeing everyone in September!
Sara has graciously agreed to come to school on Wednesday of next week to be a part of our “Move Up” day. The kinders will get a chance to meet Mrs. Dillon for 20 minutes or so and ask her any questions that are on their minds. Please join me in welcoming Sara.
Finally, I believe that all people with outstanding balances for tuition, scrip, volunteer hours, and missing library books have been contacted. Diplomas, report cards, etc. will not be given to students until all bills have been paid.
Have a great weekend.

Library books should have all been returned by now. Check with Mrs. Anderson or Mrs. Krebs if you cannot locate a book.
Scrip balances went out a few weeks ago. Please be sure you have taken care of your scrip commitment or have paid your opt-out fee.
Bills for unworked volunteer hours must be paid in full immediately.
Finally, tuition balances must also be paid in full immediately.
Remember, your child will not receive his/her report card if there are any outstanding bills (tuition, library, volunteer hours, scrip.)

St. Stephens Lunches: What a Year!
The 2015-16 school year was a very successful year indeed! The second grade finished out the year strong by bringing in 204 lunches! This wraps up an amazing year with a total of 7,910 lunches sent to St. Stephens, which is 942 more lunches than last year!
A big shout out to all of the families who participated. Whether you brought in one extra lunch or one hundred extra lunches, you all confirmed Madeleine’s philosophy statement that “we build community based on love, understanding, and respect for the dignity of all people as modeled by Jesus Christ.” Thank you.
It has been an honor to be your liaisons this year.
Sincerely, Tiffany and Reid Cooper
Editor's Note: Many thanks to Tiffany and Reid for counting and transporting the record-breaking number of lunches this year! Our community could not have asked for better representatives.

Join the Bridge Program!
Help Welcome New Families to Madeleine School
The Bridge Program creates a welcoming community by connecting new families with current families at the school. The goal of the program is to be a resource for new families and to help them navigate their first year at the Madeleine so they don’t feel left out, lost or overwhelmed.
Each volunteer is expected to check in with their Bridge family at least once over the summer, during the first week of school, and during the first trimester. In addition, there are three opportunities during the school year to get volunteer hours:
- New Parents Potluck in September (approx. two hours)
- Open House in February (approx. two hours)
- School Tours in February (approx. two hours)
If you are interested in being a “bridge” for a new family, please contact Julie Baldwin at Julie.JulieBaldwin@gmail.com.

Thank you for your support of the Madeleine Auction event. And, stay tuned for the results from the next tournament battle!

Visit themadeleine.edu/amazon This Summer to Benefit The Madeleine School
When shopping for vacation supplies and movies/books/games to keep the kids busy, remember to use the Madeleine Parents Club Amazon link. This program donates a portion of everything you spend on Amazon to The Madeleine – and it won't cost you a single cent more! You can click this link to get shopping immediately, or you can read more about this “free fundraiser” here.
The more you shop on Amazon using www.themadeleine.edu/amazon, the more money the school makes. The prices and shopping experience are exactly the same as the “normal” Amazon, but using that link earns the school a minimum of 4% commission. It’s one of the easiest fundraisers you’ll ever find!
