Welcome back Madison Families,
As we plan for a new beginning with a charge to reimagine and innovate our instructional program, rest and assure that we have a beautiful plan to personalize every student’s learning goals always remembering to ground our mindsets in care and connectivity. It continues to be an honor and privilege to serve the Madison community through every season no matter the challenge. We’re working to offer new types of learning experiences, enrichments, and clubs which we believe stimulates deeper learning, curiosity, advocacy, and inquiry. Our promise to you is to view distance/remote/virtual/hybrid learning through a positive lens of equity and provide each student an authentic experience striving to provide them with what they need and help every student thrive.
I would like to continue setting high expectations for our students in regards to academic performance within the classroom, participation in co-curricular activities as well as responsible citizenship at school and in the community. I am asking each student to commit Madison Pride by being active participants in their learning and acting responsibly as an individual within our learning community. Doing so will enable all to have a successful and enjoyable school year.
Common Core State Standards make for a more rigorous approach to learning as students will be challenged to develop their analytical skills, communicate their learning verbally, in writing, and/or in a presentation. Every student will have access to technology that is to be used as a learning tool inside the classroom and at home. Our staff plans their lessons to allow for more real-time collaboration with their students and increase their 21st-century learning experiences. Our vision and mission focus more specifically on the means to achieve these desired outcomes.
Our vision is to inspire learning, confidence, dreams, self-awareness, and prepare all students for their learning.
Our mission is to empower students to reach their full potential with opportunities for rigor, enrichment, intervention, and remediation as necessary to build high self-esteem and drive for continuous growth prepared to become responsible members of our society with college, career, and life success.
The Madison staff will strive to:
1. Form strong partnerships with you, the parents, in facilitating your child’s education
2. Maintain an open line of communication between school and home
3. Maintain a safe and orderly environment where learning is the priority
We are looking forward to a positive, upbeat school year at Madison. I encourage all students to connect with our school and self-advocate. Be yourself even when no one is watching and do the right thing. Parents, please help us by reinforcing school expectations at home. With your help, Madison will continue to be a school community in which every person feels respected, safe, valued, and is encouraged and challenged to achieve at the highest levels.
I encourage you all to be active in our PTA, ELAC, and SSC. Our partnership is essential for our continued success. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open.
I am excited about the opportunity to work with you and your student to provide a productive and safe learning environment that supports student success. If you should have any questions, please feel free to email me and call the office. My phone number is 933-7240, and email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Once again, welcome to Madison! I am honored to serve as your principal.
