21st Century Community Learning Centers
The Unified School District of Marshfield recently applied for what would be it's third 21st Century Community Learning Center (CLC) grant for Madison Elementary.
Grant and Lincoln Elementary Schools currently utilize the funding to enrich learning and increase student achievement through a before and after school program.
Madison Elementary hopes to achieve the same. The program goals would be to increase school engagement and student achievement, close the achievement gap and boost family involvement.

Washington Associated Bank
Every other Friday during the 2014-2015 school year Washington Elementary students can bring their allowance and deposit it into their savings account. After interviewing for a student banker position, twelve trained 6th grade students, with assistance provided by Associated Bank and a parent volunteer, will act as the bankers on these Friday mornings.
The purpose of this program is three fold:
-To teach the importance and responsibility of saving
-To participate in the School-to-Work initiative by forming a partnership with a Marshfield business
-To provide a fun, “real-life” math skills application experience
Even a very small account should provide a fun and valuable learning experience, not only for our student workers, but also for all students who participate by making saving a habit.
