A Word From Principal Callin
It is almost unbelievable that we are finishing up this school year and heading into summer already. We have a lot going on in these last few days and I want to make sure that everyone is up to date with the latest information. Please note that graduation is June 11th starting at 8:00pm in the Memorial Coliseum. Our seniors are finishing up right now, taking care of textbook returns and any fines, and picking up their graduation tickets. If your senior isn’t cleared, please make sure and check in with counselors, the bookkeeper, and office staff to clear up any loose ends. We are happy to provide you with the information that you need and get everything set for the big day.
For the student body we will be welcoming back next year, classes continue through June 13th. Finals will be held the 11th through the 13th; the schedule is posted on the website. This year we will have opportunities for student support in the afternoon on these days. This is a flexible time for students to get additional support from teachers, finish projects and essays, and make up tests. We want to ensure there are multiple opportunities for students to finish strong and get the support they need.
We will also have summer opportunities for students again this year. Counselors are currently helping students connect to Summer Scholars at Benson HS. We will also be holding a credit completion program for students the last couple weeks of June so that more students finish up the year with core credits earned; ask your student if this is an opportunity they need to pursue. This year we are also pleased to have 110 slots for incoming 9th graders to help get students ready for high school. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact your student’s counselor or an administrator.
As we finish it is always important to recognize all the people that make this school great. It takes the efforts of everyone at Madison to provide students with a quality education and there are many unsung heroes that don’t often get called out. I would like to thank our wonderful custodial staff for tirelessly ensuring that our students have a healthy, clean, and comfortable space to learn. Cindy Shepard heads a dedicated team that not only takes care of the school, but is committed to our students as well. Jamaal Winchester even volunteered as a wrestling coach this year and has been a calm, helpful presence at the school.
I would like to thank the wonderful PTSA for the work they have done to support Madison. I would also like to thank all our retirees and others leaving Madison for their great contributions to students. We are saying goodbye to Pat McCormick, Dave Conine, Packy Conway, Winnie Yan, Sikesone Chen, Sonia Moore, Gayle Huskey, Shirley Bolsinger, Roberta Cooper, Myriah Day, Nancy Fiorante, Shawnte Hines, Richard Jones, Lily Caputo, Doug White, Linda Singingbird-Grant, Paul Simon, William Olson, Tammy O’Neill, and Dave Peake. We wish them all wonderful days ahead and are grateful for their work.
Thank you to the entire community – let’s finish strong!
