Melba High School Greenhouse

Building and establishing a greenhouse has been a vision of the Melba School District for the past three years. Staff, students, local farmers, businesses and other community members have given their support and assistance to make this goal a reality. Last week Valley Ag stepped up again to help out with funding for this project. Shane McConnell, Mike Adams and Eric Holbrook presented the district with a check for $2500 to help purchase equipment to complete the greenhouse. Superintendent Grover commented "Valleywide continues to be a strong supporter of our school and students. Their generous contributions, scholarship monies and professional advice makes our school a better place."

The greenhouse project has a three-fold mission. First, is to enhance our students' education through the use of cutting-edge technology allowing students to apply what they are learning in the classroom to the environment where they work, live and grow. Second, is to help our local community. By collecting and analyzing data taken from our local surroundings, our students can work with the community on issues such as moisture management, climate and soil quality. Third, we hope to provide produce and products that can be distributed to the community with 1/3 of what we grow provided to the local Senior Citizens' Center.

A big thanks to Valley Ag for their contributions!

Principal's Corner

March 2015

I want to take this opportunity to invite each parent to attend Parent/Teacher Conferences this week. Conferences will be held on Thursday, March 19th from 4:00 to 8:00 pm and Friday, March 20th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Please come and meet with your student's teachers and hear how they are progressing in class. You can find out so much more about your child's progress by speaking with the teacher than you can simply checking Powerschool.

This year there are a couple other reasons to come to Conferences as well. Learn more about the Green Dot program. Green Dot is an anti-bullying, anti-violence program that Melba Jr/Sr High School has implemented into part of who we are. Information sessions will be offered at 6:00, 6:30, and 7:00. We will also be conducting pre-registration for the 2015-16 school year. Come use the time as an opportunity to find out about Vo-Tech programs, dual-credit opportunities, electives, and all class offerings for next year. Take the opportunity to speak directly with the teachers and directors of these programs and find out what is available for your student.

I hope to see you all here Thursday or Friday!

Go Mustangs!
