Dear Madison Family,

I hope this letter finds you relaxed and enjoying those precious final days of summer.  I want to assure you that we are hard at work preparing for the 2017-2018 school year, ensuring that the many achievements and exciting opportunities available at Madison Elementary are available for ALL students when we start back to school.   Along with some new faces that you will all grow to know, there are a couple changes in store for Madison Elementary this school year that I wanted to share you.  First, Norman Public Schools will be introducing a new visitor check-in system to all schools to better ensure safe-school environments for all students.  Please make sure and check in with our front office to learn more about it.  Also, in an effort to increase safety and improve our efficiency during arrival/dismissal, we will be introducing some new procedures.  Specifically, the bus and car drop-off lanes have been switched, so please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these changes, which are highlighted on the back of this letter as well as online via our school website.

Before August 17th arrives, I wanted to also share with you a couple dates so that you are aware of what’s in store during the busy first couple of weeks of the new school year.


        August 15th – Back to School Night; 5:30-7:30pm

        August 17th – First Day of School

        August 29th – PRIDE Night (parent orientation); 5:30-7:00pm

September 1-5th – Labor Day/School Holiday

         September 18-22nd – Book Fair

The 2017-2018 school year is going to be a year full of growth and excitement, and I’m looking forward to sharing in that experience with all of you.  Please know that my door is always open and that I’m looking forward to sharing in your child’s learning as we tackle the new school year.
