Principal’s Corner

Hello Madison Families! We hope that everyone enjoyed the winter break and look forward to welcoming everyone back to school, tomorrow, January 3. To celebrate, we will have an all-school pajama day!

Winter MAP Testing
Our winter MAP testing window for first through fifth grade students begins the week we return from winter break. The window is January 5 through January 19. Please ensure that your child gets a good night’s sleep and has a good breakfast on the days they are testing. Also, please talk to your child(ren) about the importance of doing their best on the assessment. Below are the testing dates for each grade level.

  • First Grade: January 5 – ELA, January 10 – Math
  • Second Grade: January 7 – ELA, January 10 – Math
  • Third Grade: January 7 – ELA, January 10 – Math
  • Fourth Grade: January 6 – ELA, January 11 – Math
  • Fifth Grade: January 6 – ELA, January 11 – Math

Warm Winter Gear
Please help your child dress for the weather. They will be outside daily for recess and mask breaks. If your child has misplaced any of their warm winter clothing, please reach out to the classroom teacher. They can send your child to the lost and found to look for the missing items.

Thank you for your partnership in education!
Sincerely,
Barb Shanahan, Madison Principal
