We are about to embark on another school year. As we begin the 2016-17 school year, I want to thank you for the support we
received last year, and encourage each of you to connect with our schools and the many activities we offer throughout the year. This calendar is not just for those who have students in the schools, but for the entire community. I am proud of students, staff and families and love to share all the wonderful happenings with you.
Last year we embarked on our “We are Madison Campaign”. We heard from our students and staff on what represented Madison. This year we wanted to highlight for you many of our community partnerships and how those connections contribute to our schools.
We know our schools cannot operate in a vacuum or without the support of the community, and we are very fortunate to have some outstanding community partners. These organizations provide programming for our students, resources for those in need, and support for schools. We want to illustrate how our partners connect with our students and staff. Take the time to read and see how these partnerships enrich our schools and our community. We have also included contact information for the various
organizations if you would like to get involved with any of the programs or find out more information.
Another accomplishment for the last year was working on our strategic plan. We engaged diverse stakeholders from the community, and we set several goals. We will be sharing the Strategic Plan with you on our website at all of our buildings and our various partners throughout the community. I would also like to continue to have coffees with community members. Please contact my office to set one up to hear about all of the good things happening in our schools and have your questions answered. Throughout the year, I will be updating you via newsletter, the website, social media and community coffees about our progress.
If you have questions at any time, please call me at 428-9315 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org For quick
updates follow me on Twitter @SuperASmith.
I hope you enjoy the remaining days of summer, and am looking forward to sharing updates with you throughout the year.
Yours in Education,
Angela M. Smith
