MCS Award Finalists in S-2-S Military Programs

The S2S (student-to-student) program for military students is very strong in Madison City Schools. Learn more in this link how two of our schools fared in a national awards competition.
Student-to-Student (S2S) raises awareness of needs of all transitioning students, both military-connected and civilian. S2S programs in schools welcome new students and support their peers who move to and from the district.

Photos below are from a recent parade at Columbia Elementary.
Check out this article on Bob Jones High School S2S students:  

Here is a video from Discovery Middle School's S2S program.
