MCPS Goes Blue for Autism April 2

Each April 2, Autism Speaks celebrates Light It Up Blue along with the international autism community, in commemoration of the United Nations-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day.

MCPS school families join the international movement.  We encourage all members of our school families to wear blue jeans or something blue on April 2.

Research varies, but some data suggest Autism now affects 1 in 68 children. 

Education and employment are key.  Schools connect children to their communities.  Jobs connect adults to their societies.  Persons with autism deserve to walk the same path.  By including children with different learning abilities … we can change attitudes and promote respect. – United Nations Secretary General, 2014

Please consider wearing blue jeans or something blue on  April 2. 

Our buildings are always blue.  So, let’s stand together and Light it up Blue by supporting children with autism by wearing jeans or something blue in this world-wide movement. – Superintendent Eberhardt


Tour de Madison Collaborates with Madison Schools

In its 28th year, the Tour de Madison is a major attraction for bicyclists and will take place this year on May 16.  Entrants ride from Graves Mountain Lodge and have routes of 20 miles, 45 miles, or 62 miles enjoying our breath-taking vistas and preeminent countryside.

For the first time, Madison School employees will be given a $10 discount for up to 20 school employees who register with Director of Finance Tina Cropp.

This collaboration with the Tour de Madison costs the schools nothing.  It shows everything about their support of school employees and our support of and gratitude for the greater community!  – Superintendent Eberhardt


Madison Schools Support Fast-Turn Around Community Need

The Madison Emergency Services Association (MESA) was recently hit hard with food requests.  MCPS teacher asks that people consider a $10 purchase of a student-made rolling pin where all proceeds go to MESA - great for community and great for student learning.

MESA offers financial assistance to qualified families in need.  In Madison County, families without or about to be without electricity, gas, water or telephone service because of inability to pay bills; and elderly people faced with bills for medicines and medical care they cannot pay can turn to Madison Emergency Services Association (MESA) for help.

In response, Wetsel Middle School/Madison County High School teacher Joe Novack spearheads a quick-turn-around opportunity (and educational experience) with his students to provide.  Mr. Novack put out the following offer on March 24 that ends March 25.

Mr. Novack’s classes will make beautiful hand-turned Cherry Rolling Pins for a $10 donation.  These MCPS student-made rolling pins are approximately 19" long with 3" tapers on each end or rolling pins with no tapers.  They are also available in oak wood. 

After one day, there is enough interest for a $1,000 donation to MESA to help those in greatest need.  We hope this interest doubles before the close on March 25.

Wednesday, March 25 is the last day to place an order.  ALL educational opportunities belong to Madison students.  ALL proceeds will be donated to MESA.  ALL gratitude goes to Mr. Novack. -Superintendent Eberhardt

Contact Joe Novack at to place an order that will engage students and help teach them about the need for community service and pride.
