    December Principal's Message

    2018 has been an extraordinary year for our school. James Madison was honored with the Distinguished School Award from the State of California School Recognition Program. The application involved writing about why our school is an amazing place for students to learn. As I thought about our school, and what helps us stand apart from other successful schools, I recognize some simple but significant facts:

    Fact #1
    All schools are faced with the challenge of preparing students for a world that has yet to be created. In the past 100 years, information has evolved from knowing what is happening around the block, to what is happening around the globe. Children are aware of more events happening in more places than ever before. Students will have to contend with how to relate to a rapidly changing world.

  • Seeking Volunteers for TK & Kindergarten Classrooms

    If you are interested in working in either transitional kindergarten or kindergarten classrooms, our elementary schools are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers! Our schools especially need support for 30-60 minutes at a time in the classroom, during recess, and during lunch.

    Please contact Madison's Parent Facilitator Sara Lopes at slopes@slusd.us to learn how you can become a volunteer.
