Happy 50th, Madison!
 
madison50 

This week, Madison Elementary celebrated their 50th Anniversary with the last of five all-school assemblies. In the last four months, Madison hosted an assembly for each of the decades the school has been in existence and honored guests and accomplishments of the 1960's, 1970's, 1980's and 1990's. Dr. Stone, Madison's original principal, even joined them for the 1960's assembly. 
 
At Tuesday's final assembly, students built a time capsule that will remain closed for the next 50 years. Each classroom decided on their ideas of items that will be extinct in 50 years. Examples of 'extinct items' include desktop computers, classroom landline phones, textbooks, print encyclopedias, iPads and dry erase boards. Students took pictures of the items and wrote a short description so that students in 2065 could learn about them. 
 
Madison Principal Tim Callahan is pleased with the anniversary celebrations' impact on student learning. "Taking a walk back in time to visit each decade allowed students to have fun while learning about our school's history. Students learned how important it is to leave a legacy and that one day, fifty years from now, future students will be digging through our time capsule from 2015," says Callahan.
