Meet the New Principal!
Back to School 2022-2023
Meet Mrs. Bowden
I am honored and excited to join the Madera Community as your new principal. I look forward to working with you to create new and meaningful learning experiences for students! Madera has a long-standing tradition of excellence in Civic Leadership that has been recognized multiple times through the Civic Learning Award of Merit. I feel privileged to be a part of the Madera legacy in developing thoughtful citizens and empowering young leaders to become active members of the community. Foundational to student success is the partnership between home and school. Our staff is committed to creating supportive, caring, and engaging learning environments where all students are supported in skill acquisition and application. Our students and staff put words into action to make the world a better place every day! I am looking forward to celebrating student growth and success with you this year!
