Today the MHS Spanish II class spent the morning cooking different foods from Spanish speaking countries. We made Caribbean watermelon-jicama salsa, Mexican Sikil Pak (pumpkin seed dip), sliced mangoes with tajin, and Colombian arepas like the ones the mother in Encanto makes. The class did a great job, and everything was delicious!
Melbourne School to Offer Summer ACT Workshops The summer workshops will offer High School students preparation in all four of the areas that ACT tests: math, science, reading, and English. For many students, a gain of just two to three points will move them up to the next higher level of scholarship eligibility. The school will also help students to sign up for either the June or July test dates. Deadline to apply for the first workshop has been extended to MAY 4 so that students can meet the ACT deadline to register for the June test. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or Melbourne High School at 870.368.4345.

No one dares step on the awesome chalk art Mr. Danny Taylor creates on Melbourne Elementary School’s sidewalk. Students and staff have enjoyed many chalk art pieces by Mr. Taylor throughout the years. However, this one is just a little more special honoring the two seniors on the Lady Bearkatz 4-Peat basketball team. Thank you Mr. Taylor!
Due to the forecasted inclement weather and our students and staff traveling to support the Lady Bearkatz in the state basketball finals, Melbourne School District will dismiss at 11:45 am on Friday, March 11. This will allow time for us to complete the bus routes before the weather is forecasted to begin. Thank you!

Car riders please call your school by 9 am to request meals for your students to be picked up today. Today will be an AMI day as well as Thursday, February 24, 2022. Regional tournament at White County Central has been postponed, as soon as we have a new date, we will inform you.
