Hello Madison Families,
I take this opportunity to personally welcome all of you to Madison Elementary School; Home of the Dragons!!! I hope that you find Madison to be a wonderful place for your child. The teachers and all staff members are looking forward to working with you as we prepare all of our students for the expectations of elementary school. We are committed in providing all Madison students with a rigorous academic program in a safe and secure environment.
At Madison we believe that each student deserves an academically challenging curriculum that meets district and state expectations, while equipping them with the necessary tools to excel in the 21st Century. All classrooms will adopt a university/college. Students will learn about that university and what is required to attend college. Along with academics, our students’ health is of great interest. With that in mind, both students and parents are encouraged to join the 5K Run/Walk Club this year. Log your miles to track your way into becoming a more active and healthy member of our learning community.
Please know that good attendance in school still remains a strong predictor of the successfulness in life. Students that miss a lot of school are more likely to fall behind and drop out. Therefore, it is not only a district–wide goal to improve attendance rates; but also a goal here at Madison.
Parent participation is an extremely important factor in any school’s success. Therefore, we urge you to attend school meetings, to volunteer in classrooms and help in school activities. Working together as a team, we can provide opportunities and the necessary tools to become a successful student and make a difference in our community. Also, please encourage your children to read daily for at least 30 minutes. Working together as equal partners is vital to our students’ academic and social progress.
I’m honored to serve as your school principal and look forward to a great year at Madison Elementary School. Please do not hesitate to call for an appointment if you should have any questions or concerns.
Mr. Jesus Peralta
Madison Elementary School Principal
