Happy New Year – Welcome Back!

Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed the break and everyone is ready to start back up again tomorrow (January 4). I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and am excited to welcome our remote and hybrid learners to 2021 at Madison!

Madison Picture Day – April 20
We will be doing school pictures this year (for both hybrid and remote learners) – just outside! We will send more information once it gets a little closer.

Winter MAP Testing – Save the Dates
Winter MAP testing will be administered to students in grades 1-5 between January 11th-29th, 2021. Please see the MAP testing schedule below. We ask that you make every effort to avoid appointments or other absences during these dates so that we can prevent having students miss instructional minutes during make-up sessions.

We use the data from this assessment in a variety of ways. In the classroom, it provides teachers with a means for monitoring student growth in reading and mathematics over time. At the District and building levels, MAP data help us set goals and evaluate initiatives. Finally, in conjunction with other criteria, MAP scores are also considered in placement decisions. Just let us know if you have any questions!
