Tricia M. Osborne
Elementary/Middle School Principal



Welcome to the Madison Academy Team! I would like to introduce myself to those of you who do not know me. My name is Tricia Osborne and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the families of Madison and make this year a successful academic and personal experience for you and your child(ren).
   
 This will begin my 14th year at Madison Academy. For seven years, I was in the classroom instructing our wonderful kindergarten students. For three years, I had the privilege of working with all the elementary and middle school students as the School Dean, Testing Coordinator, Homeless Liaison, and the Preschool Director.  This is my fourth year as the Elementary/Middle School Principal. I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Education from Central Michigan University and also hold a Master’s Degree in Early Education from the University of Michigan Flint and a School Administration Graduate Certificate from Eastern Michigan University.
   
 On a personal note, I have been married to my wonderful husband, Dennis for 13 years.  I have three absolutely beautiful daughters. Lilian is 11 and Samantha is 9, and Allison turned four in  November.  Lilian is in Sixth Grade and loves to play basketball,  softball, and volleyball.  Samantha is in Third Grade. She loves to play Soccer, volleyball, basketball and softball. Allison loves playing outside, making projects and swimming.

 Thank you for choosing Madison! I enjoy working in the educational field and hope to continue to make an impact in children’s lives for years to come. I am a true believer that the success of each student depends on a partnership between school and home.  If you have any questions, concerns, and/or ideas please feel free to contact me.


March Newsletter Information:

March is Reading Month:

Students are bringing home a reading log attached to this newsletter. Each student has a reading goal of 100 minutes a week for the month of March.  Please keep track of minutes read at home on the reading log. Parents should sign and return the log on Monday of each week. Students who return the completed/signed log on Monday and have met the weekly goal will earn a free dress down day. Have fun and read, read, read!

In addition, we will have a Family Literacy Night on March 22nd at 5:30 p.m. more information to follow.

Living Wax Museum. March 2nd:

In honor of Black History Month, Madison Academy will be participating in a Living Wax Museum on March 2nd! We welcome parents, grandparents, and family members to join us for our Living Wax Museum on March 2nd at 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.

 

This activity requires the students to identify significant contributions of a famous historical African American. The students will get to choose the person to portray with the teacher’s permission. In selecting a person, the students will find someone of historical significance; someone who has been successful in their goals and dreams; and/or someone who represents the “best” of people and the world.  The “living wax museum” is a collection of visual displays where students, dressed as famous individuals, stand at attention, while visitors walk around and tour exhibits illustrating the life of the person represented.

Half Day of School:

March 2nd will be a half-day of School to accommodate for Parent/Teacher Conferences. Students will be dismissed at 12:00.
