    Principal’s Message
    Mustangs have started off the new year in a full gallop. If the first two weeks of 2018 are any indication of what is ahead, then we are in for a dynamic year of learning. I am very excited to introduce two new teachers to our excellent and caring staff. Sonya Martin will be teaching a reconfigured 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade class to support our special education programs and Riley Steidlmayer will be joining Mr. Patusco in teaching the 1st – 5th grade art classes. We are very happy to have you both on board supporting our students.
    The Great Kindness Challenge Week starts January 22 and is sponsored by Dignity Heath. As part of this week, James Madison fifth grade students were challenged to come up with their own acts of kindness for someone in their life.

  • 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 to learn how you can become a volunteer.
