Madison ES Drum Club Hits the Right Note for Fifth Graders
Calden Gutierrez tried out of the Drum Club at Madison Elementary School because he wanted to learn to play an instrument.

The club has taught him that and so much more, said the fifth grader. It has introduced him to new cultures, taught him the joy of performing and given him the opportunity to be a role model to younger students. “It’s really fun,” he said. “Even though we miss recess, it’s a chance to learn new stuff.”

Area Service Club Donates Books about Local Hero
Thanks to the generosity of the Pilot Club of Columbus, Groveport Madison students can discover the story of a Columbus woman who made aviation history.

The club, which focuses on community service, donated several copies of “The Jerrie Mock Story: The First Woman to Fly Solo Around the World” to the District. Mock, a pilot from Bexley, set her aviation record in 1964. The trip, which she undertook in a single-engine Cessna named “The Spirit of Columbus,” lasted 29 days.
 
New Immunization Requirements
Attention parents of incoming seventh and twelfth graders. With spring break only a week away, now is a good time to set up an appointment with your doctor to schedule required immunizations that your child will need to have before he/she can start school next year. 
Schools to Start on August 14 for 2017-2018 School Year
With the new Groveport Madison High School expected to open in the fall of 2018, it is critical that we start school earlier than usual next year, so that we can dismiss for summer break as early as possible (May 24, 2018). The extra few weeks we will gain during the summer of 2018 will be needed so that the current high school can be torn down, the debris cleared and the ground excavated, and for driveways and parking lots to be constructed in time for the new school’s opening. We understand this is a non-typical school year calendar, but it’s absolutely necessary so that we can ensure as smooth as possible opening of the new building. We appreciate your understanding and patience in making the adjustment with us.

The 2017-2018 school year calendar is available here.

The 2017-2018 school year calendar is now available. The first day of school will be on Monday, Aug. 14, with the school year ending on May 24. The reason for the early start/early dismissal next year is so that we can move out of the high school as quickly as possible in order to tear down the existing building - and be ready to open the new high school just a 90 days later.
