  • Welcome 2019-2020 School Year

    Dear Madison Community,

    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Madison High School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with a rich tradition of education and diversity! I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 19 years. During my tenure at Madison High School I have served in various roles that will make this transition smooth; as a social studies teacher, football coach, athletic director, dean, and most recently as Vice Principal.

    This year I am excited to introduce two new Vice Principals to the Admin team, Dr. Keylah Boyer and Travis Johnson. Both are experienced educators and administrators in Portland Public Schools. We have been meeting to ensure the best possible year in our new space at the Marshall Campus. 

    Along with Keylah, Travis, staff and teachers I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by Madison by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners.  I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader and work with you to ensure your student’s success.

    The 2019-20 school year will be exciting as we continue to work hard to build and strengthen our programming to provide students with opportunities for both depth and breadth of offerings. Please make sure to visit the website at https://www.pps.net/madison to see updates, check out our course guide, and get the latest information about what is going on at Madison.

    There are a few important event dates and times I would like to share with you before school starts. REMEMBER TO COME TO REGISTRATION AT THE MARSHALL CAMPUS IN THE CAFETERIA (see schedule below). This is the best opportunity to make sure that you are ready to go on the first day of school so don’t miss it!

    August 16: Registration:  Juniors, 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM & 12:30 – 3:00 PM, closed for lunch.


    Return your STUDENT VERIFICATION FORM (enclosed) to receive your course schedule. Make any corrections and be sure it is SIGNED BY A PARENT.

    Take your photo for your FREE TriMet Bus Pass/Student ID (this is the ONLY TIME to get your bus pass before the start of school).


    • Fill out an application for Free and Reduced Lunch benefits
    • Make any required payments for a yearbook, athletics participation, and your all-sports pass (cash, check, debit/credit)
    • Donate toward materials fees based on your course selections

    Students that are using Trimet to get to the Marshall campus:  Trimet has announced a new electronic fare card (Hop Pass) for TriMet’s transit system. This year, all Portland Public High School TriMet passes will be printed on cards compatible with Trimet’s electronic contact system “Hop”. This new card system means that all high school student ID’s will be printed at registration on an electronic card and the student will tap the card reader upon boarding every bus and entering any MAX platform. Students will no longer be able to just show their ID card to board transit, they will have to tap their student ID prior to every boarding. The tap validates their student pass for their ride.                                                    

    August 21: FRESHMEN ONLY:  Please join us at the 9th Grade Welcome Night.

    This program is for 9th graders and their families only. This is a great opportunity to meet teachers, staff, and other families. You will learn more about Madison to get the very important first year of high school off to a great start.

    3-5pm: Lifetouch Picture, Student ID and Registration

    5-6pm: Light Snacks and ParentVUE/StudentVUE Schedules in the Cafeteria

    FRESHMEN:  Orientation starting in the auditorium from 8:30-10:25 am, instructional day begins at 10:30 am.

    SOPHOMORES - SENIORS: Our instructional day for all students begins at 10:30 am.


    All athletes participating in sports must pay athletics participation fees ($200 per sport/$400 annual maximum or $35 per sport/ $70 annual maximum for free and reduced lunch students). This can be done at registration. You may also pre-purchase your yearbook ($35), or pay for an all-seasons sports pass ($25 for all home games). These are not tax-deductible fees.

    Additionally, students are asked for voluntary contributions of up to $25 toward general classroom supplies. Based on your class selections, you are also asked to contribute toward subjects that need additional support. These include art, science, engineering, computer science, and music. These contributions are needed to purchase the necessary resources for these courses. All contributions are tax-deductible (tax ID# 93-6000830) and we ask that you donate what you can. We can take payments by cash, check to Madison High School, or debit/credit card.


    Fall teams (soccer, volleyball, football, cross country) meet during the summer. Please see our Madison webpage at https://www.pps.net/madison for important registration information, forms, and summer workout times under the athletics tab. If your student wishes to participate in fall sports, tryouts begin August 19th. You must have a current sports physical to try out. The Athletics office reopens on Aug. 8. Email AD Tyler Kelleher at tkelleher@pps.net OR athletics secretary Kerry Graves at kgraves@pps.net if you have questions.

    Don’t forget!

    Please note that the bell schedule has slightly changed from the previous year.  All high schools will be on the same rotating A/B block schedule, with 4 class periods per day.  You’ll be able to pick up a calendar and bell schedule at registration and it will be posted on our website. You’ll notice that we have Extended Learning Time (ELT) for students the last hour of the day twice a week. This is an important time for students to receive support from teachers and complete homework. This is not considered an early release –all students are expected to be in school until 3:30pm every day. We anticipate having four two-hour early releases for professional development throughout the year. I will send reminders during the school year.  

    Please follow us on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/PPSMadisonHighSchool/.  I look forward to having our current students return and would like to extend a special welcome to any new students joining the Madison community.  See you all on August 15th and 16th and Freshmen on the 21st!
