Staff and Teacher Appreciation

On Friday, February 26, the Madison PTSA Hospitality and Staff Appreciation committee will be welcoming our teachers and staff back to the building with beautiful boxed lunches from some of Vienna’s most popular restaurants. If you would like to contribute to this event (and other staff and teacher appreciation efforts) directly, you can below.  We will also be sending e-gift cards to those teachers who will continue to teach virtually.  We appreciate the support of local restaurants and One Neighborhood on this effort to celebrate our teachers in style (and safely).

Beginning this March, Madison PTSA will also be holding weekly raffles of gift cards to our amazing teachers and staff. Please consider donating in any denomination. Let’s make it rain gift cards for our teachers from now until the end of the year! Details in the Signup Genius.

MAD Drama News

This year in MAD Drama we are doing everything we can do to bring theatre arts to our community! We meet monthly on the first Wednesday as Thespian Honor Society Troupe #2541 and are currently working on our first post-Covid-19 performance, the Winter One Acts. The student directed one-acts involve many members of the department, and are a great way for everyone to get to know each other and experiment with artistic styles. The Winter One Acts will be premiered the week of March 15 as unlisted videos on YouTube. All information regarding this production as well as our meetings can be found on our website at madisondrama.com and on the MAD Drama facebook page.  For other performing opportunities, the Cappies Gala (like the Tony Awards, but for DC-area high school theater) will be virtual this year and is looking for performers! ALL JMHS students are eligible to audition (not just MAD Drama students), and the Gala is accepting applications for dancers and singers. Audition videos must be sent no later than February 8, 2021.  In other Cappies news, congratulations to Cappies Critics Cailtin Sullivan and Susan Weinhardt, whose excellent reviews of a Loudoun Valley High School performance were selected for publication.
