Washington State 2014 Healthy Youth Survey
Our district is participating in the Washington State 2014 Healthy Youth Survey during the week of October 13th – 17th.
The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.
The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.
Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.
Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.
Welcome to Madrona K-8!
Located in the heart of one of Seattle’s most historic and vibrant neighborhoods.
A public school has been in this location in Seattle since 1890. From humble beginnings in 1890, the property has undergone many changes over time to become the present day Madrona K-8 School, culminating in a renovation to our current facility in the 2000-01 school years. Our facility is in excellent condition and is one of the gems of the Seattle Public School System. It’s design as a K-8 incorporates 2 wings (one for K-5 and one for middle school), state of the art science labs in middle school, a regulation size gym, a spacious library, a stage with sound system, a computer lab, learning garden, art room with kiln, nurses station with full-time nurse, and full service kitchen facility where breakfast and lunch are served daily throughout the school year.
Madrona K-8 Back to School BBQ on 8/29/2013.
Can't be stopped by a little rain!
