Administration prepares for new school year

The 2015-16 school year is just around the corner and the campus is being readied for staff and students.  The gymnasium was the focal point of the campus enhancement plan this past year as new siding replaced worn and rusting sheet metal.  Also there is new and improved lighting so that there are no dark spots when playing volleyball.  The Class of 2015 with their monies purchased a sign that is placed on the side of the gym identifying it as the home of the Knights at Madison Academy.  These projects were completed by monies donated by our alumni and friends to the Academy School Enhancement Plan (SEP).
In the administration building, new desks have been purchased for use in classrooms.  There is a shift of classrooms this year.  Mr. McKenzie’s room is now the Spanish room and he has moved to where Mr. Ramkissoon taught History classes last year.  So the computer lab/classroom across from the library will be used by Mr. McKenzie.  Mr. Ramkissoon moved to the former English room.  He is enjoying the space and plans to hang many flags around the room.  English classes will be held in the old Life Skills classroom.  The furniture was removed and desks brought in.  Our new English teacher, Mrs. Hardin has already organized the space and is looking forward to meeting all the students.
Pre-session for the staff begins August 3rd with meetings, classroom time, and some fun activities planned.  Classes start August 11th.
