Great Days at Madison!

Stuff going on at Madison!

April 20, 2018-Parent Ed. Day-No School for Students

April 20, 2018-Madison PTA-Brookfield Zoo Outing- Look for more information to be sent home.

April 25, 2018-Late Arrival Session times on these days are as follows:

  • AM Session 9:45-11:50
  • PM Session 12:55-3:00

Pick up times from the bus companies are adjusted to reflect the later start time. 

 

Children who will be Kindergarten eligible at the end of next school year will be placed in an afternoon session.  This is done in order to allow space for students who are newly three years old when they enter throughout the year the opportunity to be available for learning by attending in the morning session.  It is becoming increasingly difficult to grant AM session preferences for older students as we are currently at our maximum enrollment capacity every year.  If you have a session preference due to extenuating circumstances, you can send in a written request for a session along with the reason for the request to your child’s teacher or give your request to the office staff on or before May 11, 2018. We will try to accommodate some requests if received by this date but we cannot guarantee that you will receive the session requested as balanced classrooms and certain ratios must be maintained and space is not available to accommodate many requests.  We will notify all registered parents by June 8, 2018 of your child’s session so that you will have plenty of time to make arrangements for child care, etc. before the school year begins. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work to make the best placements for all of our students for the upcoming school year.

At Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting, the Board heard from three teachers and an instructional coach about how the infusion of technology via the District’s Mobile Learning Implementation has dramatically changed student engagement in their classrooms. They also provided teacher feedback samples on the topics of creativity, student-to-device ratios and device types.

A video created by the Communications Office demonstrated these new and exciting modes of learning and teaching. Assistant Superintendent of Innovation & Growth Dr. Mark Cohen noted that “these skills fit our concept of being future ready and future focused, allowing for collaboration in the digital space beyond the walls of the classroom.”
