Adolfson & Peterson Construction installed a learning wall facing the current Madison Elementary School playground. Students and visitors are able learn about the construction of their new school building James Madison STEAM Academy. The learning wall displays images and information about the various construction tools and machines that are being used for the new build as well as digital renderings of the school.
Ground was officially broken on the new James Madison STEAM Academy PreK-8 on Tuesday, marking the beginning of construction of a building that will replace Madison Elementary School.
A Madison Mission and Vision Task Force began meeting October 13, 2020, and met six times. Assistant Superintendent of Elementary and K-8 Schools Wes Tuttle and Chief Communications Officer Theresa Myers facilitated the meetings. School Leadership Executive Assistant Renee Fleece took notes during the meetings. Assistant Superintendent of Support Services Members Kent Henson observed the meetings.
