The SA is hosting the annual class competition Volleyball Tournament on three Wednesday mornings in January (Jan. 6, 13, and 27) during regularly scheduled assembly. Both spirit and activity trophy points will be calculated. Start practicing with your team now! We would love our parents to take a lunch break and come watch the students play from 11-11:50AM. During the school day students are encouraged to wear their 2015-16 CLASS T-SHIRTS with their uniform bottoms.
The annual Late Night Volleyball Tournament is January 23 at 6pm. Each team must have a minimum of 6 people including 2 females. The cost to play is $10/person…but it is free to cheer! Concessions will be available throughout the evening. Register your team by contacting Gloria Sutherland or Dan Johnson at 615.865.4055.
The annual Student Association Christmas breakfast was given today as a gift to the Madison Academy school community. The chapel was decorated with a tree and trimmings and the tables red and green tableware. The food was provided by Mrs. Watkins and her son Mr. Chad Watkins, principal at Highland Academy. Students and staff enjoyed socializing with each other. Classes were shortened to make time for the program. This event was started ten years ago when Chad Watkins and Bruce Boggess were working here at Madison and has been enjoyed each year.
The Student Association is encouraging students to show some school spirit and dress up each day this week. Here is the schedule.
|Monday||School Spirit or Sports Day|
|Wednesday||Christmas (or Ugly Christmas sweater) Day|
The annual Student Association Fall ball was held at Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland’s home, starting at 6pm. Students and staff were asked to dress up in their favorite patriotic–red, white and blue clothing. Two weeks prior to this event SA officers passed out tickets to the ladies — giving them a chance to ask a friend to the Fall Ball. Transportation and directions were provided. The evening began with students throwing darts at balloons filled with paint. While that was happening, others were taking pictures with friends by an American flag. For supper students ate hot dogs, chips and baked beans. Apple crisp was for dessert. Everyone chose either water or root beer as their beverage. Later in the evening was a pumpkin carving contest as well as an award for best dressed. The evening ended with sparklers and fireworks.
The Student Association is hosting the annual Scavenger Hunt in the Madison Academy gym beginning at 8pm. This is a class competition that involves not only the students and staff but includes parents as well. Each class brings items from home and school and spreads them out in one of the four corners of the gym. In the center of the gym the announcer will call for an item. Each class will look through their stuff and pass it to the runner who will then take it to the table in the center of the gym. The first class to get the correct item to the table earns one point. If the class runner has the exact item they earn one point. If the class has the correct item category they earn one point. For example, if a state quarter–Tennessee is called each class that brings that item to the table will earn one point for a state quarter, one point if it is a Tennessee state quarter, and one point if the class is the first to place it on the table. There is a time limit to find and bring the called items to the table. At the end of each round is an untimed event, such as who can drink a bottle of water the fastest. Also during each round in random places classes are called to create a pyramid: a base of four, then three, then two, then one who will raise their hands to show they are done.
There are many rounds and each class usually is close to the lead for a time. After each round the standings are announced to indicate how many points a class earned in the competition to that point. At the end the final standings are given and a winner of the scavenger hunt is announced. Not only do students and sponsors participate in running but parents can do so too. The parents have a key role to play in the event just by showing up. The SA awards Spirit points to students and parents that participate in this event. Record is taken at 8pm and those who are at the gym are awarded spirit points for their class. At the end of the school year the class that has the most spirit points is given a $350 prize.
