  • IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL CALLIN:

    Dear Senator Community:

    We are quickly approaching the end of the year – I’m sure that May will fly by before we know it. There are a few things that I wanted to bring to your attention:

    Advanced Placement and SBAC (State) Testing Season

    May is a big month for testing. Students who are taking an AP class are strongly encouraged to take the AP exam. They are scheduled for different days depending on the course and will be held at the Convention Center. For our juniors, the state testing will happen the week of May 21st. This test is important for two reasons: Students are able to meet the essential skills requirement for graduation through the SBAC and it is also a part of the overall school report card. To see the schedule of test dates/times, click HERE.

    Calling All Computer Science and Engineering Volunteers!

    Please help us spread the word--if you or someone you know works in a computer science or engineering field and might be interested in one of the volunteer opportunities below, we would love to hear from you!

    The Computer Science and Engineering programs are recruiting for our Career and Technical Education (CTE) advisory committee, which usually meets two evenings each school year. As CTE programs, we must (and want to) get input from industry professionals about the classes and curriculum in our pathway. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Tamara O'Malley (tomalley@pps.net) or Monica Gray (mgray@pps.net).

    As a TEALS partner school, we are also assisting with volunteer recruitment from the computer science and engineering fields to bring industry volunteers with their subject matter expertise into classrooms throughout the Pacific Northwest, including here at Madison. TEALS is a program supported by Microsoft Philanthropies that recruits, mentors, and places passionate technology professionals into high school classrooms as volunteer instructors or classroom assistants. At Madison, these classes are AP CS (Java), Robotics (Java, electronics, mechanical engineering), and Senior Design (needs vary year to year based on projects designed by advanced CS and Engineering students). Other high schools in the area may have different needs. You can read more about TEALS on their website at http://www.tealsk12.org or email Tamara O'Malley at tomalley@pps.net.

    Graduation

    We are so excited to graduate the class of 2018 at the Coliseum on Sunday, June 3rd at 5:30pm. Our senior assembly where we recognize our seniors is Friday, June 1st at 9:30am. We look forward to seeing you.

    ….. as always, as we finish out the year, connect with us with any questions or concerns. We want to ensure that all of our students finish the year strong.

    Best,

    Petra

  • The SafeOregon Tip Line aims to increase student safety

    In keeping with our commitment to student safety, last October PPS joined school districts across the state in using the SafeOregon Tip Line. We want to remind you about this important resource.

    SafeOregon was funded by the Oregon Legislature as part of a statewide effort to improve school safety. It provides a secure means for anyone to anonymously report suspicious or imminently unsafe situations, such as threats of violence, fights, drugs and alcohol, weapons, bullying, harassment, intimidation or self-harm. 

    Anyone, from students to parents to community members, can access the system in a variety of ways, including:

    ·         The “Report unsafe behavior” button found on every PPS school’s website (click on the Quick Links tab on the left side of this homepage.)

    ·         The SafeOregon website 

    ·         A live call/text (844-472-3367)

    ·         An email to tip@safeoregon.com

    ·         The mobile app that can be downloaded from your Smart Phone via iTunes or  Google Play

    Trained staff are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to respond.

    Please be sure to share this information with your friends and family. Remind your students: If you see or hear something, say something - immediately.

    Let’s work together to keep our community safe.

  • We need you!

    Madison High School relies on voluntary contributions for basic materials (paper, pencils, notebooks, etc.) for our classroom teachers to distribute to our students. Our donations at fall registration were drastically lower than in past years, so we are posting this reminder for those of you who were unable to contribute at that time. Donations of ANY amount are welcome! Click this LINK to help out! Thank you for supporting Madison High School!

  • A Word From Principal Callin

    Petra Callin, Principal of Madison High School

    Dear Senator Community:

     

    We are quickly approaching the end of the year – I’m sure that May will fly by before we know it. There are a few things that I wanted to bring to your attention:

     

    Be Champions of our Future School

    As many of you may of heard, the bond is significantly over budget and the board will be making decisions about how to move forward. It is essential to our community and the future health and welfare of the school to make sure that we have a first class rebuild. Our community deserves it. The board will be discussing the bond and Madison’s future at the May 8th board meeting and then voting on the plan on May 22nd.  I have been told that the bond discussion is scheduled for approximately 8:00pm on the 8th and will be held at the district office board room at 501 N Dixon. Come and wear your Madison colors!

     

    Advanced Placement and SBAC (State) Testing Season

    May is a big month for testing. Students who are taking an AP class are strongly encouraged to take the AP exam. They are scheduled for different days depending on the course and will be held at the Convention Center. For our juniors, the state testing will happen the week of May 21st.
