Dear Parents of Melba Elementary Kiddos,

We are trying to bring some fun and inspiring lessons to your students, we just need a little help getting it done. I know that times are tough, so if you feel that this is too much, please do not participate. We currently have a request for a grant from Donors Choose for K-6th to have access to enriched science activities. If you can even give a little it would really help. Here is a link to the website. It is secure and is tax deductible.

Thank you so much for your consideration,

Mrs. Thayer

Help me give my students a step up in their music class for real! We are in desperate need for our musical superstars to be able to rise to the occasion on risers that are safe and washable!

Lost and Found

As the weather is turning warmer our lost and found is getting bigger and bigger.  To tell you the truth, it may be a mile high! If you are near the school and your child is missing a coat or sweatshirt please take a moment to come and check out the lost and found.  Items that have not been claimed by spring break will be donated to a local charity.
