The Friday Feature!

News and Notes for the Madison Staff (2/19/16)

Tech Committee Update

The DOT will be removing our laptops and providing Madison with 164 new Chromebooks for next school year! A Madison Technology Committee member will be stopping by to talk to your grade level about how your grade level would best utilize these resources before we come up with the best plan for Madison!

PARCC Assessments

PARCC assessments are only administered once this year. Our Madison testing window will be from April 11-21. More information regarding testing time required per grade:

Madison Mountain Lion Memories

I believe we have an opportunity and responsibility to tell the world about the positive stories occurring at our great school! In 2016, everyone has an opportunity to publish stories about our school. Some are positive, some not. Some true, some not! We can outweigh any negative talk with our great stories!


Our school blog is up and running! Now we need writers! Writers can be staff, students, parents, etc. Rules for writers are written on the blog site under "How To Share My Madison Memory".


Each classroom that gets 3 writers to submit a story by March 1 will be entered in a raffle to receive $25 in school supply money! There will be a winner chosen for every 3 classrooms entered in drawing. http://madisonmountainlionmemories.blogspot.com/
