Principal’s Corner – November Update

Dear Madison Families,
I cannot thank you enough for your kindness and support this school year – I am beyond grateful to work with our students, families, and staff members. It is truly and honor to be your Madison Principal. On behalf of the Madison Staff, have a wonderful and restful Thanksgiving Break! As a reminder, there is no school November 25-27 – Happy Thanksgiving!

VIRTUAL Parent Teacher Conferences – November 23 and 24 (no student attendance)
Please look for a virtual invite link from your child’s homeroom teacher to join your parent/teacher conference. We look forward to discussing your child’s progress!

New slots open weekly! If you are seeking some help with math for your child’s asynchronous work, there are after school virtual sessions where teachers are available to work with your child. Parents, please refer to the appropriate section below to sign your child up for support. Please note, elementary sessions are 15 minutes long. Please do not sign up for more than one time on a single day.
