Staff Members Donate Photo Packages to Students

Madison Central School staff members donated 48 yearbook photo packages to students this year. 

The donations are thanks to a partnership with Madison CSD and BJK Photography, based out of Oneida. 

"One of the perks of the partnership is that staff members receive a complimentary photo package," said Amber Barrett, Yearbook Advisor and Secondary Math Teacher. "So what the staff members decide to do is donate their package to a student who wouldn't be able to afford a photo package otherwise."

When staff members pose for their yearbook photos, they let the photographer know they'd like to donate their package. 

After receiving the list of students who did not purchase a photo package, Barrett says a team of staff members work to decide who is the best fit to receive the packages. 

This has become a tradition in Madison, dating back a few years.
