Madison HS Students Win Awards at Envirothon
Madison High students won several awards at the Envirothon, a local competition sponsored by Dominion Energy and the Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District. Students compete in five environmental categories (aquatics, wildlife, natural resources-soils, forestry, and a current environmental issue) and give a 20-minute judged presentation on a special topic.  This year’s challenge was creating a sustainable future for a Virginia farm. The Madison team of Kana, Abigail, Celeste, Caroline, Simone, and alternate Joey won the aquatics and agriculture topics and came in second in forestry. The team finished third overall and was ranked third on their presentation. Contact news liaison Francesca Branson at fmbranson@fcps.edu.

Madison HS Community Honors Service Members via Mindful Memorials
Madison High students and staff members partnered with Mindful Memorials to honor, express gratitude, and unite around a shared practice of honoring veteran and fallen warriors.  As a school community, participants cut yellow ribbons and attached the name tag of a fallen warrior: one for each service member killed in-theater since September 11, 2001. Approximately 7,000 American soldiers have perished since 2001.  The ribbons and their attached tags will be suspended from the rafters at the Women in Military Service for America Memorial at the gates of Arlington National Cemetery.
