Northside Schools Community Forum

February 15, 2017 9:41 AM

In response to previous discussions about schools on the Northside, State Representative Melissa Sargent and Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham and I came together to provide an opportunity for everyone to learn more about our Northside elementary and middle schools, to ask questions and to get more involved.

Hope to see everyone there!


All are welcome this Thursday at a free, fun Northside community-wide event co-hosted by 48th Assembly District Representative Melissa Sargent, District 12 Alder Larry Palm and Madison Schools Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham. Principals from our Northside schools will be in attendance to meet future (and past!) students and community members interested in learning about the exciting things happening at our schools on the Northside of Madison. 

Here are the details: 

  • 6:00 pm: presentation by Superintendent Cheatham
  • 6:30 pm: Q&A with Superintendent Cheatham and elected Madison officials
  • 7:00 pm: Visit and talk with individual principals
  • 7:30 pm: event ends


  • Gompers Elementary School library
  • 1502 Wyoming Way, Madison, WI 53704

Can I bring my children?

  • Bring the whole family! 

I speak a language other than English. Will there be an interpreter?

  • Yes! Please request an interpreter by calling Taryn Soza at 608-663-1898.

I don't live close to Gompers. Can I request free transportation?

  • Yes! If you need to arrange a ride, please call 608-663-1898 by February 14.

Hope to see you there!
