MCS Receives Platinum Level Recognition from The Green Schools Environmental Program

In asking the Catholic Church to engage in a dialogue about “our common home,” with his encyclical Laudato Si, Pope Francis has challenged us to look deeply into how our spirituality and stewardship can positively impact the natural environment. As an answer to that call, Madeleine Choir School first grade teacher Hilary Lambert and a few dedicated parents-who call themselves The Green Team- set out to become a recognized “Green School” by the Utah Society for Environmental Education.

'Noyes Fludde' by Benjamin Britten presented by The Madeleine Festival

Students from The Madeleine Choir School will perform "Noyes Fludde" this Friday, April 29, and Sunday, May 1, in partnership with Tyler Oliphant, Aubrey Adams-McMillan and Michael Aiello who will sing the adult roles.
The last time the Choir School presented "Noye's Fludde," in 2006, all students from the school participated. Enrollment is bigger now, so only those in grades 4 through 8 — 170 in all — will sing, play in the orchestra or keep the show moving as "stage ninjas." Older students will play Noah's sons and their wives, as well as the eight "gossips" who try to persuade Mrs. Noye not to board the ark; 110 will portray animals.

Please join us for our next admissions "Drop-In" tours: Tuesday, April 12 -- 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

The Madeleine Choir School hosts a series of "Drop-In" tours throughout each school year. These tours are designed to give prospective parents an opportunity to see the daily workings of the Choir School in session. No appointment is necessary during these "Drop-in" Tour times. Please "Drop-In" to see our Student Learning Expectations (SLE) at work in each of our classrooms.
