Welcome to Madison Elementary!
Steven Isenhour, Principal
Cameron Shinn, Assistant Principal
You are welcome at Madison Elementary!
I am honored to serve as principal of this excellent school.
With a vibrant student body, committed staff, and incredible families, this is a school where anything is possible. Our mission is to inspire our 21st Century Learners to pursue their unlimited potential and fulfill their dreams. We believe creating a safe learning environment that is centered on scholars, directed by teachers, and supported by home and community, will spark our scholars to become independent learners with the desires, skills, and abilities necessary for college and career.
If you are a prospective family, please contact me anytime to schedule a tour. We'd love to meet you! If you are a current family, we’re your proud partner in education and want you to know that we are here for you!
As principal, my beliefs are simple:
- We are strong team of caring and committed professionals, working in partnership with families to create an engaging school.
- We create a community of respect and cooperation to deliver the best education possible for our scholars.
- We leverage the diversity of our community in its many forms to promote peace, acceptance, mutual understanding, and respect in the classroom and beyond our school day.
- We integrate the Colorado State Standards into a rigorous, aligned, and engaging curriculum to provide meaningful and unique learning opportunities for our scholars.
- We ensure clear and consistent communication between our families and school, so we build mutual trust.
- We hold our scholars accountable for their learning and actions in a manner that builds a safe community where all scholars feel welcome and able to learn at the highest levels.
- We have expectations that are clear and understood, and discipline that serves to teach, restore, and help our scholars be better citizens.
I hope that you will see your own values in my stated beliefs, and work with us to make Madison Elementary the best school for the world.

Any parent or guardian interested in enrolling their child in a school outside their home boundary for the 2021-22 school year must apply during the open enrollment period, which is November 1, 2020, through December 17, 2020. While District 6 is able to accommodate most open enrollment requests, it may not be able to approve requests for enrollment into schools, specific grade levels or special programs that are at or above capacity or cannot fulfill the specific needs of the student.
An important message in English and Spanish from Dr. Deirdre Pilch, Superintendent. We will move to remote learning beginning Monday, November 16. A detailed email has been sent to all parents and students, and can be read by clicking on this headline. Please read the entire communication as soon as possible.
Lori McCarty, the Health Services Coordinator for Greeley Evans School District 6, has been named the School Nurse Administrator of the Year by the Colorado Association of School Nurses.
After implementing a snow day this week, the District 6 leadership team has reviewed the district’s guidelines and procedures around closing schools because of bad weather. For several significant reasons, for the remainder of this school year we will not halt learning because of bad weather and will instead switch to remote learning when the weather conditions create a safety issue for travel. Students will meet with their teachers online for their regular school day if the weather is too bad to host in-person learning at our schools. Students who are learning online this year will continue as normal. Click for more details.
The Tointon Academy of Pre-Engineering will be the name of the new PK-8 school to be built in west Greeley. The Board of Education unanimously approved the name at its meeting Monday night. A committee of 14 District 6 staff and community members reviewed 70 names that were suggested for the new school through a community survey this summer. The committee met four times to whittle the names down and come up with a recommendation for the Board of Education.
