MCS Summer Programs Going Strong

Summer is anything but quiet in many Madison City Schools.
Hundreds of students are taking part this year in summer learning programs for elementary, middle and high school students.
More than half of MCS schools have activities going on ranging from ELL (English Language Learners) programs for students still new to the English language to Extended School Year (ESY), and reading and math classes.
Tuesday, Superintendent Dr. Ed Nichols and Board of Education members toured the schools along with State Sen. Tom Butler, Assistant Superintendent Eric Terrell and several MCS administrators.

The following photos were taken (in no particular order) at these schools:
James Clemens High School
Liberty Middle
Columbia Elementary
