Madison Elementary celebrates 50 years in Wheaton
May 4, 2015 6:25 PM - On the surface, a lot has changed at Madison Elementary School since it opened 50 years ago. A kindergarten classroom now sits where the gym used to be. A kitchen for teachers is now a reading room. An addition on the east side of the building is home to many new classrooms. But the heart of the Wheaton school -- the wonderful students, caring families and loyal teachers -- has remained unchanged since its beginnings, said reading teacher Lisa Tomek. On Monday, students assembled outside to form a number "50" for a yearbook picture, in celebration of the school's anniversary.
