Principal’s Corner – Save the Dates!

To our Madison families –
On behalf of the Madison staff, we hope you have a wonderful break and can’t wait to welcome everyone back in 2021! πŸ™‚

Madison Picture Day – April 20
We are 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 11-29, 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. Please just let us know if you have any questions!
