A Word From Principal Callin

Dear Madison Senators and Parents:


It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year at Madison High School.  We have an exciting year ahead of us with many opportunities for students.  We have increased our offerings and students may now also engage in programs such as Computer Science, Engineering, and Biomedical Science along with our strong long time programming. Please make sure and visit the website at  www.pps.k12.or.us/schools/madison/  to see updates from me and get the latest information about what is going on at Madison. 


There are a few things I want to make sure and share with you before the school year starts.  Remember to come to registration August 21st and 22nd in the Madison Cafeteria (see schedule below).  This is the best opportunity to make sure that you are ready to go on the first day of school so don’t miss it! This is the only opportunity to receive your TriMet Bus Pass until September 26, 2014.


You MUST BRING to Registration;

  • Student Verification Form – Make corrections as needed – MUST BE SIGNED BY PARENT (enclosed)
  • Life Touch School Photo Order Form (if you wish to order school photos BEFORE September 26, 2014)
  • Completed Student Fee/Contribution form with payment (check or cash only)
  • 2014-2015 Free/Reduced Form (available at reg) to qualify for reduced sports fees

Items you’ll receive at registration;

  • Tri Met Bus Pass (free to all students through June 2015)
  • Student Photo ID
  • Class Schedule & Locker Assignment
  • Textbooks
  • Information regarding Athletics, Sun School, and other programs offered at Madison High School

Schedule – Student Registration – August 21 & 22, 2014

Aug 21st

9:00 – 11:30 AM

12:30 – 3:00 PM

Last Name Beginning with the letters:A - M

Aug 22nd

9:00 – 11:30 AM

12:30 – 3:00 PM

Last Name Beginning with the letters:N - Z

The first day of school for all students is September 2nd.  All students will report at 8:15am.  Please note that we were not approved to hold a special orientation time for freshmen in order to conserve instructional minutes. Freshman teachers will be working together to provide freshmen support and orienting within their classes.  All staff will be available to help freshmen get to know the building and systems so that they become comfortable. Please contact me with any concerns whatsoever.

Please note that there are some changes to the bell schedule and school calendar.  All high schools will have the same schedule this year. Students will go to all 8 classes on Mondays, 1-4 on Tuesdays/Thursdays and 5-8 on Wednesdays/Fridays. You’ll notice that we will also have late openings on 6 Wednesdays throughout the year for professional development as the younger grades have had for a few years now.  There are a couple of changes on the school calendar that I’d also like to draw your attention to. Madison was provided two additional professional development days for teachers so that they could have more time to plan collaboratively for your student’s success. These days will be August 25th (before school starts) and February 2nd (at the start of second semester).  To make up for that day, Madison students will end school on June 12th instead of the 11th. Having a professional development day at the beginning of the second semester allows teachers the time to reflect on the first semester and plan for the second semester accordingly.

I anticipate that 2014-2015 will be a great year to be a Senator.  Enjoy the last few days of summer and we’ll see you on August 21st and 22nd
