The Mustang Message
Thanksgiving Break and Homework
November is an important month for us. Throughout this next month, students and staff members will work hard to help us achieve our goals. The Melba School District has adjusted our calendar this year. Thanksgiving Break will occur from November 23rd-November 26th. Students will not be in school this entire week. Please help support us at home by continuing to have your child read at least 20 minutes each night. Students can also access our i-Ready program at home through the following link: www.my.classlink.com/msd136. This program provides students will specially designed math and reading curriculum that is developed to meet their individual needs. Students utilize their usernames and passwords on a daily basis and have these memorized. For students in Kindergarten and first grade, you can contact your child's teacher to have this information if they have not quite memorized it yet. Thank you! We appreciate all of your hard work and dedication you have in helping your child complete their homework each night. Helping your child reach educational success is a team effort, and we recognize your participation and efforts. We are so appreciative!
We would also like to thank you for helping us to keep our students and staff members safe this last quarter. We were able to complete the last quarter COVID free in our school and recognize the efforts taken by all. Our families have been great about keeping students home when they are not feeling well and taking preventative measures outside of school. We thank you and will continue to follow our COVID policies and procedures this next quarter. We hope that you all have a great Thanksgiving break!
Thank you for your participation this year in our school fundraising. We are very appreciative of our PTA members. They have been working hard on developing various fundraisers to help bring money to our teachers and school. PTA has also developed a Facebook page to help promote our fundraising activities as well as provide you with additional communication about events and activities happening at our school. Please make sure you follow their page!
Farmstead Night was a blast! We saw many families during our Melba night and were able to raise money for our school. It was great to bring our community together! We are hoping to do this event again next year!
We had our first Hat Day in October. Students and teachers had fun seeing and wearing their hats during the school day. We were able to raise $224 on our first day! Our next Hat Day will be on November 19th!
Texas Roadhouse Rolls
Thank you to all of those who either bought or helped to sell Texas Roadhouse Rolls. Families will need to pick up the "dough" to deliver out on Thursday, November 19th at 6:00pm in front of the elementary school.
Thank you for all of your support this year. Our Melba community is amazing! Go Mustangs!
