News of the JMHSAA
We celebrated Madison’s 90th birthday with a bang! The weekend started with Sing and Homecoming and then on Sunday, November 22nd, Alumni and Faculty, working together, produced a memorable day. The more than 400 people who entered the halls ooh’d and ah’d, seeing that our school is as beautiful as ever, as they received a warm welcome from students, faculty, and JMHSAA board members.
Alumni toured the school, visited the auditorium (so many found their seats with their names on them), and then came to the gym for a great luncheon hosted by the Board of Directors of the Alumni Association. Everyone had a truly wonderful time, so much so that we are being plagued about the 100th in 2025. (give us a rest and then…). If you missed out on this you can see our school in all it’s glory on this site, on our new back page called “90!”. The event was magnificently photographed by Steve Mekler, Joel Aronson, Jane Castorina Gordon, and Larry Melamed. Larry, a faculty member, along with Principal Jodie Cohen, Bill Dumont, and the incomparable Laraine Izzo were instrumental in pulling the whole weekend together and we can’t thank them enough – and this writer personally thanks the entire Board of Directors for such a great commitment to this event.

The most successful fundraising project we have ever had. Chairs are being named for alumni in every era – the 20's right up to the 2000's. A wonderful tribute to our school and a lasting gift to ourselves. Please go to the Giving Back page to learn more about it.
We have a new brochure which highlights Madison's accomplishments, the students, school, and faculty. If you don't receive a brochure in the mail please contact Marty Alpert
