Melba Students Volunteer at the American Cancer Society Making Strides Walk

Melba students Shelby Jameson, Tia Erickson and Katie Brower, volunteered Saturday, October 18, 2014 at the First Annual American Cancer Society Making Strides Walk. The event was to raise awareness, show support, provide resources and to raise money to help with this great cause while having fun and getting outside and enjoying friendship, fresh air and health.

Shelby, Tia and Katie helped set up for the walk in Meridian at the Julius Kleiner Park. They kindly cheered on walkers and passed out water. Vendors, walkers, nurses and agencies that support awareness and education for The American Cancer Society enjoyed a beautiful fall morning while making a difference for many who are fighting this fight. Each step, each act and each person helps with this great cause! Nice job girls!

Principal's Corner

December 2014

Thank you to all of you for your contributions to a great first semester at Melba Jr/Sr High School. The past semester has shown why Melba is such a great place. The Spirit of the community was present and on display for all to see at sporting events, music concerts, dinners, and fundraisers. Our sports teams had a successful fall by qualifying for District and State tournaments. Especially successful was the cross country teams. Both placed very high at state with the Girls team finishing second and Sierra Manzer winning the state championship. Jr. High school sports were also very successful with our future high school Mustangs getting some great competitive experience. The Jr. High Girls 8th grade plays for the District Championship. First time that has happened since 2009. Winter sports are now going full speed. Wrestling, and both boys and girls basketball are competing well. I would like to strongly encourage you to come out and join in on the fun and support our student-athletes. We are really working to have a positive, electric atmosphere that creates a true home field advantage for the Mustangs.

Hopefully you were able to attend our fantastic Band and Choir Christmas concert last week. If not you will have another chance coming up in the next semester. Please refer frequently to the school website for updates.

When the new semester starts encourage your student to attack school with enthusiasm. Technology has made it very easy to follow how your student is doing in school. Refer to powerschool frequently. This can be especially helpful if your student is or ever has been on the ineligible list. Make it a habit to check grades on Thursday. If your student needs to make up an assignment or fix a grade they can then make sure that it gets done or turned in first thing on Monday. Most of our teachers have webpages and have included assignments and class calendars on them. This is another grade tool to help your student to be successful.

Finally, enjoy your extended family time during the break.

Merry Christmas!

Go Mustangs!
