Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:
I am excited about the 2015-2016 school year. Melrose Elementary School has a dedicated and passionate faculty, staff, supportive parents, creative and energetic students. Although I hope you have had a fantastic summer and are enjoying the last few days, I trust that you are getting excited about the new school year.
Please join me in welcoming Ms. Lisa Menegat as the full time Assistant Principal at Melrose. I would also like to welcome Ms. Renzi, Ms. Knouse, Ms. Derr, Ms. Brown, Mr. Snyder and Mr. Lupia who have joined our staff this school year. With your support, we will continue to develop the real gifts and talents of all the students at Melrose School for the 21st century.
The academic year for students will start promptly on Monday, August 17, at 8:45 a.m. The students may enter the building at 8:15 a.m. Breakfast will be served from 8:15 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. The school day will end at 3:30 p.m.
