Madison schools are celebrating the end of the school year and graduation ceremonies this week.


“Congratulations to all of our students for finishing a strong school year and especially to our graduating seniors,” Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham said. “We are so excited to celebrate the accomplishments of our students, teachers and all of our school communities.”


“We have worked hard to be incredibly focused this year because ultimately, we believe that our path to success —the path to closing opportunity gaps and seeing the best results for all children – depends on our ability to stay focused and follow through on our strategy as a district with tenacity and determination. Thank you to our teachers and all of our staff who have done that hard work this year.”
