MCHS Ghost Out Program Set for March 28

On Tuesday, March 28, the Ghost Out Program will be presented at Madison Central High School. The "Grim Reaper" will be walking the halls of Central in the morning claiming student and faculty victims. These people represent the staggering statistics that every 30 minutes someone in the United States is killed because of an impaired driving accident. The Ghost Out Assembly will be in the Health Building Gym from 1:20 to 2:50 p.m. The timing of this dramatic and catastrophic event is intentional for the decisions made by our students during Spring Break and Prom.

Graduation for Madison Central High School seniors will be at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 19. Graduation for Madison Southern High School seniors will be at noon on Saturday, May 20.
