Madison Elementary Welcomes Ryan Towner

Posted on May 14, 2015

On Thursday, May 7, Principal Aaron Leniski shared with his staff his decision to accept the job of Director of Athletics and Student Activities at Penn High School. Mr. Leniski informed parents of his decision in a letter dated May 8. (Here is a copy of that letter.) It was not an easy decision to make, as he has truly loved his years at Madison and grown close to that community. The students, staff and parents that make up Madison Elementary School are kind, generous, welcoming, engaged and supportive. It's those very attributes that will make the transition for incoming principal Ryan Towner all the easier. 


Mr. Towner spent the 2014-2015 school year as Assistant to the Principal at Walt Disney Elementary School, working with acting Principal Mickey Roelandts to provide great leadership, vision and stability. Prior to that he served an administrative internship at Madison, supporting the success of that school community. His years as a teacher at Prairie Vista also contribute to the body of experience that has prepared Ryan to be a great school leader. The Madison community will be looking forward to welcoming him back this fall.
