Dear Madison School Families:

I want to welcome all new and returning students and families to Madison Middle School. I am excited and honored to serve the students, families, staff and the community of Vista and Oceanside. The staff and I are pleased to welcome you and your student to our learning community. We believe in a focused vision, accountability and collaboration with parents and the greater community. Madison is where Respect, Responsibility and Relationships are being built.

Madison Middle School provides all students opportunities to utilize state-of-the art technology to expand learning. Students have access to iPad carts, 1:1 Chromebooks in all but a few classes, computer and digital media labs, aquaponics, Marine Biology, service learning projects, Music, Drama, Yearbook, Spanish, AVID, Leadership, Makerspace and much more.

Our exceptional staff exhibits collaboration, teamwork, diligence, and passion to provide an excellent academic program in order for students to succeed and to be prepared for the 21" century. Our motto is, "High Expectations in a Supportive Environment".

We believe in working hard and celebrating our successes. The Madison ASB and PTA provide fun activities such as pajama day, twin day, spirit day, spirit assemblies, guest speakers and field trips. Extracurricular activities include clubs, an extensive after-school sports program sponsored by the Boys and Girls Club, tutoring and many other exciting opportunities. Please encourage your student to participate fully in any and all school activities to maximize the middle school experience.

We welcome the opportunity to partner with you to ensure your student's success. Madison families are strongly encouraged to stay informed and up to date on student grades and assignments by signing up on the Parent Portal (please contact Ms. Boring if you need assistance getting set up). We look forward to continuing and deepening this partnership in order to provide support for your child. In addition, we urge parents to view the Madison website in order to receive up to date announcements and information on upcoming events.

Furthermore, we encourage family participation here at Madison. There are several opportunities available to parents such as PTA, School Site Council (SSC), English Language Advisory Council (ELAC), Power of Parents (POP) and other volunteer activities.

Our wonderful team of teachers and I look forward to seeing you at our Back to School Night on August 30th for 7th & 8th grades and August 31st for 6th grade. I bring 17 years of educational experience and I am very much looking forward to meeting each of you.

Again, I look forward to working collaboratively with students, families, staff and the Vista and Oceanside community to achieve and maintain high academic standards, excellence, build 21" century skills and to create a community of confident life-long learners.Together we will make this a successful and rewarding school year.
