The following week we begin our end of year ASB activities. In order to participate in out of class activities and privileges, students must be in good academic standing and citizenship. Students may participate if they have the following grades: A,B, C, D and if they have the following citizenship grades: E, G, S, N. In addition, there are behavior qualifications and attendance qualifications. All students have been notified whether or not they meet these requirements. A letter has also been given to 8th graders and conditional contracts have been given to allow for students to bring up their grades before the Promotion Ceremony.
8th grade Promotion, for those who qualify, will take place on June 21st at 9:00. The ceremony usually lasts about an hour and you may take your child home early that day or they may walk back to school with staff. The location is at the Madison High School Football Field. The attire for students is dressy/casual. All family members are welcome! Your child must meet criteria in order to attend. Please see the criteria below.

The iCafe is open from 7:15-7:45 for students who need access to internet in our Library. Students can eat, read or catch up on homework in the morning. No RSVP is needed. We are encouraging all students who are at school early to read & eat breakfast in the morning. Don't forget, our healthy breakfast options are only $1.00 and if your child receives free and reduced lunch, breakfast is free! Our school was recently featured by the Hunger Coalition- you can read more here:
School Site Council
School Site Councils (SSC) provide oversight of the academic planning and budgeting process associated with the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) in order to meet the needs of all students. SSCs provide meaningful consultation with the principal to oversee the implementation, monitoring, and revision of the SPSA, including reviewing and analyzing data; consulting with advisory groups; evaluating programs and activities; and allocating the expenditure of funds available to the school through categorical programs.
SSC Meetings will be held the third Monday of every month starting at 4:15 PM in the Library.
