t is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 2018-2019 schooyear at Melrose School, home of the Mustangs!

I feel fortunate to be a part of such an incredible school with such awesome staff and I am looking forward to another exciting year of learning and growing with our students and working with  all stakeholders.

During the 2017-2018 school year, we will continue to build  upon  and refine our proven foundation of hard work and continued  excellence in education. We are all committed to creating a program of rigor and high expectations. I witness on a daily basis the qualities within faculty members that demonstrate their genuine desire to see each child grow and develop to their fullest potential. Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and our support personnel are committed to providing our students with  many learning opportunities both inside and  outside of the classroom.

Throughout the year, we will keep the website updated, provide newsletters and  provide calendars to ensure that everyone gets current information from the school  in a timely manner.

We invite and encourage students and  parents to work in  partnership with  us. We extend a special yearlong invitation to all our families to join us at school activities and  events whenever possible as well as join the Melrose Mustangs  PTA and be an active part of the progressive change.

Please  know that we value home/school communication. We encourage all
members of our Melrose family to contact us if the  need  arises. Please know that communication with all stakeholders is vital and  plays an integral role in  each of our students
' success.

My goal this year is to work with  each student, staff member and  parents in order to realize the best experience for all involved. We are an  incredible team and our combined  efforts will create a strong foundation for each and every child that enters through our doors. Welcome, and thank you!
