Welcome to the home of Madrona Elementary PTSA

A "2017 School of Distinction"

the Madrona Panther Partners

Madrona Elementary is a neighborhood school in the heart of Seattle's Central District. The Madrona Elementary PTSA is a very active part of our strong, diverse community and works hard to support every child who comes through our doors. Madrona Elementary is an arts-infused school, which means that we believe that arts education creates an engaging school environment for our children and has a positive impact on academic success. We are so proud of our school and the continuous progress we have been making. We welcome you to explore our dynamic community! We'll be conducting more School Tours in the fall so please check back for more info on that at that time.

2nd Annual Scripp's Spelling Bee


Madrona PTSA hosted our school’s 2nd Annual Scripp’s Spelling Bee on Thursday, March 1st.  The Spelling Bee was open to all 1st through 5th graders who wanted to participate.  The winner will go on to the Regional Bee on March 25th.

In addition to the Spelling Bee, we also participated in the Great American Spell Check Fundraiser, which took place on February 15th.

Teachers worked with students to learn 50 spelling words (or sight words for Kinders). Students collected pledges from friends and family for every word spelled correctly. As an incentive, we will reward every student who turns in a pledge form (with or without pledges) with a Free Dress Pass. Students who spell 100% of the words correctly will also receive an additional prize. The classes with the most words spelled correctly and the most pledges collected will also win an ice cream party. 

We love Madrona because the school, the staff, students and families are part of our family. We all know each other’s faces and names, we support each other, hold each other accountable and have fun together. I can’t imagine a better school where my child’s academic success and personal development can flourish in an inclusive environment.
— Terra Spickerman, mom of a 2nd grader
