Welcome Back to School!

Let's Fly Eagles, 2022-2023!

Dear James Madison Families,

On behalf of the staff at James Madison Elementary, I am happy to welcome you to the 2022-23 school year! For our new families, my name is Mrs. Cartland, your principal, and I cannot wait to meet your family in person. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.

The first day of school will be Thursday, September 1. Our school hours are 8:45 AM - 3:45 PM Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and 8:45 AM - 2:15 PM on Wednesday. You can view the school supply list here and join us for Meet and Greet to drop off all those supplies and meet your teacher. Please see below for a few reminders as we start back to school.

This is a time to find your student’s classroom, meet his/her teacher, drop off school supplies, and ask any questions you may have.


  1. Students are allowed to enter the school building at 8:35 AM each day. Breakfast will start right away in the classrooms at 8:35 AM. Please take advantage of this opportunity.

  2. If students arrive at school prior to 8:35 AM they should proceed to the playground. Supervision begins at 8:25 AM, no earlier. Please note this time supervision begins for the safety of your student.

  3. As in past years, only students and staff are allowed in the building during drop off and pick up. If you wish to visit the school, please enter the main entrance on David Avenue and proceed to the main office during school hours. Please also ensure you have an appointment set up as we are unable to accommodate spur of the moment meetings with teaching staff. The school number is 920-459-3585.

  4. Scooters, bicycles, skates/rollerblades are the responsibility of the owner. The school assumes no responsibility for lost, stolen, or damaged items. However, provisions have been made to safeguard bikes/scooters by requiring them to be properly parked and locked in the school bike racks. Other storage solutions will not be accommodated. Scooters, bicycles, and skates/rollerblades should never be ridden on the school grounds.

  5. For additional information please view our 2022-23 handbook linked here.
