        This Friday is the mid-point of the fourth quarter. Yes, the school
        year has certainly gone by quickly! We would like to remind
        students that their academic success in school should be their
        number one priority. As the weather is warming up spring fever
        may begin to spread. We hope that all our students will stay
        organized, complete assignments, finish the year strong and well-prepared for eighth grade.
        For students planning on participating in fall sports next year this is also a reminder that poor
        grades in fourth quarter will result in the lack of playing time next fall.

        Mr. Golde t-shirt orders have arrived and are being distributed. Mr. Dagesse will be placing an
        additional order next week. If students would like to purchase a t-shirt with Mr. Golde’s
        message, they need to bring Mrs. Pope $5 by Tuesday morning – before morning

        Next week Mrs. Pope will be asking students to complete a brief, simple survey about students
        and their use of technology. They will not be asked to put their name on the survey. The
        results will show us on average how many of our students have access to a computer and the
        internet outside of school. This information will help plan how to best include technology into
        instruction in the years to come.

                             AFTER SCHOOL HOMEWORK PROGRAM

   Madison Middle School is starting the After School Homework Program on September 15, 2009.
The program will run Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30-4:15 in the LMC. You and your student make the
decision as to how often they attend the program. Some students decide to attend every Tuesday and
Thursday, others come once or twice a month. Students will be allowed use the materials and
computers in the LMC. Teachers supervising the program will be available to help students but will
not be able to do individual tutoring. All students are welcome to participate but must follow the
rules which are listed below. Students will sign in when they arrive and if they leave before 4:15, will
have to sign out. Your student will be asked to leave if they are disruptive and a phone call will be
made to let you know of this. Please be aware that we are unable to monitor an individual
student’s whereabouts. If you are concerned that your child may say they are going to the after
school program but then goes else where, it may be a good idea not to give permission for them to
attend. Please contact the Valley Transit, 832-5800, to find out the bus schedule if your child needs to
take the city bus home after the program is done. Contact Mrs. Cash, teacher, at 832-6276 or
cashlori@aasd.k12.wi.us with any questions or concerns.

   Permission to participate in Madison Middle School’s After School Homework Program-please
return to Mrs. Cash, Rm. 210 or the office.

All school rules apply.
Students must do homework or read a book or magazine.
Students are not allowed food and drink in the LMC.
Respect the rights and property of others.
Games on the computer are not allowed.

I agree to follow all school rules during the after school homework program.
