A Word From Principal Callin

Dear Senator Families,


As we close this short week I wanted to share a few thoughts with you. After the upheaval in our community last week these past few days have not only been calm, but very positive. I regret that individuals in our community chose to create such stress through pranks and spreading unfounded rumors. What I do appreciate, however, was how our community came together to support each other. We are still investigating the matter and appreciate any information that anyone might have. Social media can be a great tool for communication, but it can also be harmful. It is important that if students hear of a rumor they come to us immediately so we can investigate it thoroughly instead of spreading it. We thank every student and parent that passed along posts that they received or saw.


As we head into the holiday season I would like to share with you a slice of what it means to be a Madison Senator. Yesterday during lunch a group of seniors set a small table complete with a table cloth and silverware and had a little “friends-giving” lunch. It was wonderful to see them celebrating their friendship and community. I wish the same for all of you. I also have seen signs all over the building this week that read, “Madison XOXO”. I continue to be grateful to be part of this community and send all my best wishes.
