Madison Virtual Decision Day 2020

Virtual Decision Day Plans- May 1, 2020
District Wide

College Signing Day celebrates students. Whether students plan to attend a community college, a university, a certification program, the military, or any other education past high school, College Signing Day shows support for their decisions for the future. College Signing Day is usually recognized every year on May 1st. This year, due to the current stay at home order, we will still celebrate, just virtually.

How Can the Whole District Support our Seniors?

  • Seniors can post their pictures on social media (assuring they tag better make room and reach higher) with fun and creative ways of revealing where they plan on attending college in the fall. Seniors, be sure to send your photos or videos to Ms. Cauley by April 30 so she can post to our Instagram page on May 1. Email her at scauley@madisonschools.k12.mi.us

  • Students can make pictures, posters, signs, use side-walk chalk to congratulate our seniors in the district on College Signing Day with messages. If signs can be made and put on lawns if possible. This can be done prior to May 1 and pictures or videos can be sent to the MHS/Preparatory principal by April 30 to be posted on the Madison Instagram page. Leslie’s email is lrennekegebein@madisonschools.k12.mi.us
    Students/families in addition to sending your messages to Leslie Renne-Kegebein, you can post to your own social media pages, be sure to following hashtags #CollegeSigningDay and #BetterMakeRoom
