Welcome Madison Avenue School To The 2020-2021 School Year

Portrait of Malikita WrightWelcome to Madison Avenue Elementary School, where “everyday is a great day for teaching and learning”. We understand that a strong academic foundation provides the framework to being a successful citizen in society. It is our mission to develop every child’s academic potential and their ability to be a contributing member to our community both now and in the future.

This year has been an unprecedented year. School as we know it has been altered due to the global pandemic. As an educational community, we have been faced with challenges unforeseen. However, through the efforts of our dedicated teachers and support staff, we have been able to purposefully keep our level of focus high to ensure our scholars learn. As we move into the 2020-2021 school year, we remain committed to teaching and learning.  We are excited to begin this year and look forward to providing experiences that continue to inspire.

We will begin this school year similarly to how we ended the previous year: using a remote/virtual platform. Fortunately, reflecting on our experiences with the emergency remote learning from the Spring, we have gained insight to better serve our families and scholars. High-quality instruction aligned with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards and the district’s curriculum remains the norm. Hence, teachers and support staff have developed creative ways to engage our scholars in high-quality instruction over a virtual platform.

We know that our parents/guardians were challenged with the sudden changes to our school. Yet, parents/guardians rose to the moment and stepped in to assist in ensuring our scholars remained connected to their school community. We welcome their unwavering support this school year as we continue to maneuver through the uncertainty of the pandemic. Similarly, we are prepared to provide our families and scholars with much needed support as well. Collaborative efforts will make a difference in the success of moving beyond maintaining to excelling academically and emotionally.

Health, safety, and wellness of our scholars and staff remain a top priority while we strive to move towards a return to in-person instruction. In the meantime, we will forge ahead with the determination and our superintendent’s vision of “building our community one student at a time”. Regardless of what public health conditions lie ahead, we are prepared to provide a quality education under any instructional environment.

This 2020-2021 school year is special. Although our return to school is not as we anticipated, our teachers, support staff, and administration are prepared to meet the challenges as they arise.  We will get through this together becoming better individually and collectively. I am honored to be the principal of Madison Avenue Elementary School and look forward to a safe, productive, and exciting school year!

Malikita Wright,

Principal
