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

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!

New Boxtop App!

The new and improved Box Tops mobile app uses state-of-the-art technology to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to Madison’s earnings online. Check it out here: https://www.boxtops4education.com/
Traditional Box Tops clips are being phased out of production, but may continue to be found on many products for awhile. Until the phase-out is complete, you can still clip and send them to school, but getting the app and scanning your store receipt will be so much easier.

School Choice Events

In Eugene School District 4J, our school choice policy is that students may request to enroll in any 4J school. School choice requests are accepted in an order determined by lottery.

School choice in January: School choice tours and meetings will be scheduled in the month of January. To be included in the annual school choice lottery, 4J residents must apply between January 1 and January 31. This deadline changed last year to be earlier than in previous years. Non-district residents must apply for an inter-district transfer between March 1 and March 31 to be included in the school placement lottery.

Who needs to apply: All students who wish to enroll in a school other than their neighborhood school must submit an application. This includes incoming siblings of current students, students who have moved out of our school neighborhood or the district and want to remain enrolled next year, eighth grade students who want to enroll in the International High School program, or a middleschool other than their neighborhood school, and non-residents who enrolled this year on a one year inter-district transfer. Their enrollment is not automatic.

Who does not need to apply: If your student is already enrolled in our school on an in-district school choice transfer and has not moved out of the district, or is already enrolled on a multi-year “open enrollment” transfer, you do not need to reapply to continue attending our school next year.

Come see our schools: If you or any of your friends are interested in exploring your school choice options, please invite them to come learn more about our wonderful school at Madison’s school choice events in January:
