A Word From Principal Callin

Petra Callin, Principal of Madison High School
Petra Callin, Principal of Madison High School

A message from Principal Callin:

Hello Madison Community!

Spring is upon us and this is the season we begin to plan for the next school year. This planning is very important and you and your student are a central part of what we do. Students are currently being asked to “forecast” for next year’s classes. They have received a forecasting sheet and course guide. They are being expected to choose classes that both fulfill graduation requirements and are of interest to them.

 There are a few things you need to know to support your student. We encourage students to push themselves and to take challenging classes. Increasing challenge is not only important for a college ready transcript but for any post-secondary training as well as the world of work. Please note, however, that balance is also important. Students should be challenged but not buried. There is such a thing as too many Advanced Placement classes. We also encourage students to take full loads and take advantage of the opportunities that we have at Madison.

 Please note that we have a very strict drop policy and expect students to make careful decisions. Students are only allowed to drop classes in special circumstances. I staff the building and build a schedule based off of students’ needs and wants. As our resources aren’t abundant, I have to carefully create a schedule that does a good job of allocating staffing so that students are appropriately served. Additionally, follow through and perseverance are important skills for students to build for their future.

 Please ask to see your student’s forecasting sheet and talk through their choices. Counselors, teachers, and administrators are happy to help advise. The more careful planning that happens now, the better the year ahead.

 

Best,

Petra
