James Madison Families,

Welcome back to school! I hope everyone had a happy and restful summer break. The teachers are ready to help their students get back into the daily school routines and back into the swing of learning. 

This year, we plan to focus on reading fluency.  We believe that your support will be instrumental to the realization of this objective. This is why we request that you make sure your student reads at least 20 minutes each day. 

We also hope to implement more rigor, or productive struggle, in daily lessons. These adjustments will help your student to not only experience academic growth but also self confidence, knowing that they are able to achieve anything they set their minds to doing. 

We are so excited for the 22-23 school year and all the fantastic things it will bring!

Thank you for your continued support. 

Best Regards,
Julie Neilson

Principal

James Madison History

James Madison Elementary was established in 2007 when the school, originally, Central Middle School, was changed to an elementary school.

Many current teachers have stayed here for the many excellent programs that are offered. Some of the favorite programs the teachers like are: Art from Art Specialist Mr. Rhodes, Music from a Music Specialist, daily computer lab classes, and wireless tech device (iPads, Chrome Books, Laptops) for all grade levels.

The yearly play we perform for the community and families is one of the most anticipated performances of the school year. In addition, we have an after school program, as well as, different after school clubs to participate in throughout the school year.
