James Madison Middle School - A community of involved citizens that empowers all students and prepares them for success in a changing world!

Track is Starting Soon

Track practice will start on Monday, Mar. 9! Track packets will be available starting next week sometime. All students must have a valid physical (no more than two years old on May 15, 2020) on file, to participate in track. If you are unsure if your student needs a physical, check with Mary in the office. Here is a link to the promo video, and it’s quite entertaining! FUN TRACK PROMO


Hey Madison families, just a reminder: please drive slowly when picking up or dropping off your students! Our Wilkes Dr. crosswalks are becoming quite dangerous for students, as some parents are zooming through them and not stopping to let students cross. The speed limit is 20 mph during pick up and drop off times, so please slow down and stop for students waiting to cross. Thanks everyone!

8th Grade Parents!

Hello 8th grade parents!  Madison Middle School invites you to an important presentation on classes your student can take in high school. Learn about opportunities, electives, and Career and Technical and IB pathways at North Eugene High School. Learn how to help guide your student and get your questions answered. North staff will present to us NEXT MONDAYJANUARY 13TH, 6-7PM, AT MADISON in the cafeteria.  Contact Mr. Barsotti for more information.  We really hope you can make it!

All School Field Trip!!

On Monday, Dec. 16, all Madison students will be traveling by bus to Matthew Knight arena to watch the #1 ranked Oregon women’s basketball team play! This is a rare opportunity for students and staff, and everyone is excited. Per our recent message sent out, here is the link to fill out the permission form online: Click here to fill out Dec. 16 permission form! This form can even be filled out right on your phone. Please fill this out ASAP. We will be sending paper forms home after the Thanksgiving break, but our preference is that parents will fill out the online form if possible! If you would like to chaperone (parents will be driving their own cars to the arena and staff will ride the buses with students), message Audrey at 541-790-4339 or wiltz_a@4j.lane.edu.

Parent Conferences

Parent/teacher conferences (arena style) are this week! On Nov. 6, parents can come from 5-8 p.m., to meet with teachers in the large gym. Conferences have a 10 minute time limit, so we can serve more parents. Teachers will also be available on Thurs., Nov. 7, from 8:00 a.m.-noon, and these will be the same (arena style, 10 minute limit), only they will be in the classroom commons! If you feel you have an issue which could take longer, you may schedule a private conference at a later time. The following teachers will only be available for the Weds. P.M. conferences: Jan Youngman, Jessica Johnson, Katie Bushnell, and Michael Kresko.

Picture Day!

This Wednesday, Sept. 11, is school picture day. All students will get their picture taken, even if they are not purchasing them, as this is the picture that will go on their Activity/ID Card and in the yearbook. Students who are purchasing pictures should bring their picture envelope, with cash or check enclosed, and hand it to the picture peeps when they are called to the gym. SMILE!

Important Docs

The documents below should be read by all parents (6th WEB Invite is only for 6th grade parents). Some of these will also be available as hard copies at Fee & Schedule Night. The Student/Parent Handbook will be given to all students on the first day of school, to be kept in their binder, so this one is for parents to view.

Student Technology Contract Every student must have this signed and turned in before they receive their iPad!
