Welcome

  • Hello MBFS families:

    We had the best Fish Fry!  Kudos to our school PTSA for providing our school students and families a time that will be remembered for a long time. Let me also take this time to thank our school stakeholders (parents/ staff/ community/ students) for the donation of time through volunteering, or donations made to our Fish Fry.  It is only through such help and generosity by the community, businesses, and you, our treasured families and friends, that our school can put on such an event year in and year out.  Our 25th Fish Fry will be one that will be remembered in the minds of students and stakeholders for years to come.  It was a wonderful day!

    Please take time to review a listing of April activities, school news, the FSA testing schedule and more.  And as always, should you have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please feel free to reach out to us at school.  We are here to serve.   

    Thanks for always bringing sunshine to the beach!  

    Mr. Ateek,
    Principal

    Madeira Beach Fundamental Chosen as National Sandy Hook Promise Winner

    Madeira Beach Fundamental School received the ‘Start with Hello’ Grand Prize Award for preventing social isolation from Sandy Hook Promise. On Monday, Feb. 4, representatives from Sandy Hook Promise visited Madeira Beach Fundamental School to present students with the Start with Hello Grand Prize Award. The students of Madeira Beach Fundamental were recognized for their outstanding efforts to creatively integrate and implement the core values of Sandy Hook Promise’s Start with Hello program among its student body and overall community. The award was celebrated during school-wide assemblies.

    Start with Hello is a proven and easy to implement program that empowers students to create an inclusive and connected community by reaching out to those who may be chronically isolated, marginalized or rejected, to let them know that they are seen and valued. Pinellas County Schools participated in Start with Hello week Sept. 24- through 28, 2018. Pinellas County Schools began its no-cost partnership with Sandy Hook Promise in early 2018.

     Sandy Hook Promise is a national, nonprofit organization based in Newtown, Connecticut. They are led by several family members whose loved ones were killed in the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012 that claimed the lives of 20 first-graders and six educators.

    2019-2020 8th grade National Junior Honor Society Interest

    NJHS is a service organization for students who exemplify and demonstrate the following traits: service, leadership, character, and citizenship. Eligible eighth grade students will be evaluated by a faculty advisory council on the basis of these traits. 

    To be eligible for membership consideration, students must be in eighth grade and have a 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale beginning with grades active in sixth grade and meet the behavioral and character requirements. If, after a student has been selected, but before the formal induction, the student is involved in an incident which places his/her qualifications in question, induction will not take place until the faculty advisory council re-evaluates his/her standing.

    Students must also be able to verify at least 20 hours of community service with documentation.  Acceptable forms of documentation include a letter or the form available on the website with signed documentation of the service done and number of hours.  Service hours may be completed at the same place and should be signed off by a non-family member.  The hours may begin at the beginning of his/her seventh grade year and need to be completed by the first day of 8th grade.
