Check out Troop 42514's web page here:
Madrona Elementary is host to Girl Scout Troop 42514, a group of forty-five future leaders. First established in 2015, the troop is made of Daisies (K-1), Brownies (2-3), and Juniors (4-5). Last year, the Girl Scouts hiked through Madrona Woods, learned pottery from local ceramicist and Madrona parent Jodi Rockwell, built Little Libraries, practiced first aid with Madrona parents Dr. Jen Younggren and Dr. Liz Kracen, took field trips to a local fire station as well as to Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, and took part in Madrona's Mayfair Parade. Our Troop had a chance to practice their new skills, had fun reconnecting with old friends, and made new ones during the Troop Camping Trip to River Ranch over the Labor Day weekend. All girls and those identifying as girls are welcome to join, regardless of financial status.
Formerly CDSA, Launch provides before and after school care on site at Madrona. They also offer full- time care during the summer. From their website:
We provide before and after school programs for children in grades K–5 and full-time enrichment programs during school breaks. We are open Monday through Friday, with morning programs starting at 7:00 a.m. and afternoon programs ending at 6:00 p.m.
Our schedule allows time for nutritious snacks, academic work, outdoor play, and engaging enrichment activities. The school year focuses on building strong teacher-child relationships as well as the child’s academic, emotional, and life skills. We offer each child a safe physical and emotional space to help them develop a grounded and strong sense of self.
Launch teachers collaborate with one another as well as public school teachers to create lesson plans that maximize enrichment learning. We utilize teacher feedback and observations to identify student needs and plan activities with specific learning objectives that support each child while remaining fun and inclusive for everyone.
