JMHS Food Pantry

Thank you to all that supported our annual Giving Tree winter clothing drive! Huge thanks to Madison HS teacher, Ms. Slingerland, who deserves our appreciation of her time and energy that went into creating this list and sharing our students’ stories.

The impact of COVID this year left many Madison families in need, and this was our greatest number of requests for clothing assistance we ever had. Thank you to everyone for helping our Madison families at a time when this assistance was so critical. And thank you, as always, for the generosity and warmth the Madison community demonstrates towards our students!

Thank you again for the many donations that have been made to the Madison Pantry and Outreach efforts! We have supported our Madison families who need assistance since January 2018 through our pantry. Thank you for your incredible support and generosity!

If you are able, please consider ordering something for those in need from the Amazon Wishlist.

Band & Winter Guard News

As many of you may know, Bob Nicholson, Madison High School Color Guard Director and instructional assistant, died unexpectedly in September.  Mr. Nicholson was a beloved member of our Madison family and was the driving force behind the visual program for the James Madison High Marching Ensemble and Winter Guard.  We miss him tremendously but are grateful that we will be able to honor him through the Bob Nicholson Scholarship Fund.  The Fund will be used to help students of all income levels participate in the pageantry art of Color Guard.  If you would like to contribute, you can use the PayPal link on the JMHS Band website  or you can write a check to the JMHS Band Boosters, with the memo line noting that the check is for the Bob Nicholson Scholarship Fund.  Thank you to those who have contributed already.  This is a great way to honor Bob for his 18 years with the JMHS Color Guard program as well as for the huge impact he had on our students and on the JMHS Ensemble’s success.  
 
There is still time to help the Band’s fundraising efforts by purchasing your 2020 Official White House Ornament. This ornament honors John F. Kennedy, the thirty-fifth president of the United States. With this ornament, we remember President Kennedy through his posthumous official White House portrait, made in 1970 by Aaron Shikler.  They are $23 each and make wonderful holiday gifts for family and friends.   Email beckyablewis@gmail.com or call/text Becky Lewis at 703-599-7429 to make a purchase.
