SA Scavenger Hunt tradition continues

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.

Teachers prepare for the first day of school.

Faculty and staff at Madison Academy finished its annual pre-session and are ready for school to start Tuesday, August 11.  The entire MA team met and reviewed responsibilities, policies, and the calendar.  Then later in the day team members moved to help with the Volleyball Play Day.  Coach Adams expressed appreciation for all the community members, alumni and MA staff for volunteering their time to help with concessions, score keepers, and gate personnel. It is a great way to get involved with the school.  The team got an overview of the technology  upgrades and products that will be available for teachers in their classrooms and new mini iPads students will use. In addition, a new program called Naviance was highlighted that helps students prepare for the ACT and college. Safety and first aid procedures were reviewed.  Again this year the faculty were divided into Professional Learning Communities (PLC): Humanities, Athletics, Math & Science and Fine Arts and reviewed academic goals and planned initiatives.

Pre-session is about meetings but there was fun time built into the schedule as well.  Miss Laren Brooks, Southern Adventist University representative, took time out of her schedule to meet with the MA team for lunch at Olive Garden.  We are grateful for time and energy Miss Brooks devotes to our students and exploring college options with them. The Madison Academy team along with the Madison Campus Elementary team ate brunch together in the chapel and then shared together thoughts about the upcoming school year.  The Fuentes family invited the MA team to their home to swim, eat and worship together to begin the Sabbath. On Sunday, an invitation was extended to the MA team including the Student Association officers to enjoy a Sounds baseball game.

The Madison Academy team is excited about the new school year and looks forward to interacting with all the students.

Registration is online

We hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful summer and have taken time to relax a bit during the break from school. The 2015-2016 school year is right around the corner, and we are ready!!

Registration was completed almost entirely online and thus there is no official “day” to register. Anyone who has not yet completed online enrollment, scheduled classes, or finalized a financial plan, is encouraged to make an appointment with the Registrar and/or Business Manager, respectively. Please take steps to do this the weeks of July 20-31! August gets extremely busy and we would like to be able to give you our full attention.

 

On our website is copy of this year’s Student Supply List. If you have questions about your classes, please call the Registrar’s office and we will help clarify.

Tuesday, August 11 is the first day of school!!! We have a special schedule for the first two days which includes lots of fun. Returning students are done at 11:40 AM on Tuesday. All new students will join the SA officers, faculty, and staff for lunch and an afternoon of bowling.  Our new students can bring a change of clothes (but remember: no skinny jeans and girl’s shorts need a 5″ inseam). The following day, Wednesday, is a full day of school, but the afternoon includes a wet-n-wild SA Icebreaker. Remember to bring clothes to change into so you can get wet!
