Dear Madison families,
I hope you are enjoying the start of summer. I want to let you know about a change in our school office at Madison next year.
Our current assistant principal, Erin Gaston, has been appointed to be principal of Howard Elementary School next year. Though Ms. Gaston has been with us for only a year, she has become an integral member of our team and I will miss her. While I am sad to see her leave Madison, I know that she will be an outstanding addition to the Howard staff and community.
It is my pleasure to introduce to you Madison’s new assistant principal, Gina Wilde.
Ms. Wilde is an experienced educator and administrator whom we are fortunate to have join us. She has served as principal of Gilham Elementary School, 4J’s largest elementary school, since 2013. At Gilham, she led through the development of a behavioral intervention program and created a successful house program to boost school climate and build community. She previously worked as a classroom teacher, math specialist, and counselor for at-risk youth.
Ms. Wilde recently completed her doctoral program, and is excited to join us at Madison and work at the secondary school level. She brings to Madison an enthusiasm for engaging families, improving instructional outcomes, and closing opportunity gaps for students.
Thank you for welcoming Ms. Wilde as Madison’s new assistant principal and for your continuing support of our school community. Best wishes for a wonderful summer.
Principal, Madison Middle School
Eugene School District 4J
