MADISON – The Madison Elementary School Ambassador Program is instilling mature behavior habits of citizenship and leadership in a new generation of learners.

“I’m extremely excited to announce that we are starting a Madison Elementary Ambassador program,” assistant principal Elizabeth ‘Britt’ Lovelace said. “The Madison Ambassadors will be a team comprised of sixth-grade students that will meet monthly to serve as leaders of our school.”

The acronym “MADISON” sums the responsibilities of their role: “Motivated Ambassadors Dependable, Innovative, Supportive, Optimistic, Noble.”

Sixth-graders who are interested in this service role have completed applications. A team of teachers and staff members will select the ambassadors.

“It is truly an honor to be selected as a Madison Ambassador. However, there are expectations that each ambassador must uphold in order to remain on the team,” Lovelace said.

Expectations for an ambassador include modeling appropriate behavior for peers, acting as an encourager and working hard to complete classroom assignments. “The ambassadors should be a positive influence within our school culture,” Lovelace said.

A Madison Ambassador’s ‘job description’ covers specific tasks:

* Collaborating with team members in implementing ideas.

• Greeting adults who visit and guiding younger students to classrooms in the morning.

* Escorting guest speakers and approved visitors who tour the school.

* Cleaning the campus on designated days with designated adults.

* Modeling appropriate behavior.

• Encouraging peers who face obstacles.

• Exemplifying good behavior constantly.

When the ambassadors meet, discussions will focus on ideas “for improving our school and helping the administration better serve the student body at Madison elementary,” Lovelace said. They will talk about the school’s needs and ideas for resolutions to meet those needs.

The group also will read material to judge informed decisions and formulate plans to act on those ideas. “Appropriate strategies for responding to difficult situations and how to model desired behavior for all students will also be a part of our conversations,” she said.
