Principal's Corner

It is hard to believe that we are one month into the school year already! It has been great to see the excitement of all the new beginnings that come with this time of year. Our fall sports teams are on the path to successful seasons. They have faced some adversity and are getting through it and showing some growth and improvement, indicators of true success. One school record was already broken as Rylan Manzer. He broke the time record for cross country in the first meet. The best thing I have seen is the school spirit. I challenged the school to increase school spirit and I have seen it improve. We have had rowdy, positive, and enthusiastic crowds at all of our events. I invite the community to join in on our school spirit. Sing the school song. Join in on the cheers. Visit the school website and see what the theme of the week is and then join in. Encourage your student to do the best they can and then celebrate successes! Let he or she know how proud you are of that great score on a test for example. Be involved with your student. Ask how class is, who is their favorite teacher, what class are they struggling in? Check powerschool weekly. It is a fantastic tool to know exactly how your student is doing. There are great things happening in Melba. Be a part of it!

Go Mustangs!
