Melba Student Wins Congressional Art Competition

Lancey Robbins has just won the Congressional Art Competition for the Idaho entry. This nation-wide high school art competition has been around since 1982 where a winner from each state is flown to Washington DC in June for an awards ceremony and then their art displayed for one year in the US Capitol. Lancey's painting, "Oasis in the Owyhees", was painted from a photograph taken from our local Owyhee mountains using oils on canvas. This was Lancey's first time using oils.

Lancey is a part-time student at Melba High School, where she takes art and seminary. The rest of her schooling is done online at Another Choice Charter School. She does online schooling so she and her family can travel without worrying about absences. Her travels have allowed her to visit multiple art museums in Paris, Rome, Venice, and Munich, including the Louvre and Musee d'Orsav. Lancey has a deep love for art and will continue taking art classes at Melba High School from the Incredible Mrs. Myers.

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!
