    Melrose Elementary: Grade "C" School...We Did it, TOGETHER!
    For much too long that one would want to even think or speak of, Melrose has been labeled as an "F" school.  Through the cohesive teamwork, strategic planning, support, leadership, and execution of teachers and instructional leader Principal Nikita J. Reed - This. Just. Happened. Congratulations to the entire Melrose Elementary Community - scholars, parents, teachers, staff, and devoted volunteers!
    Thank you for  your vision and leadership Ms. Reed!

    Summer Reading 2017
    Avoid the "Summer Slide" by reading books this summer!
    1. Melrose Scholars can read THOUSANDS of books FOR FREE on! 
     Myon summer reading
    What's great about Myon is that it automatically tracks your scholar's progress all summer long so that they only have to focus on reading. 

    If your scholar is reading REAL books this summer they can still win PRIZES from Pinellas county by filling out a reading log form for each book and/or article that they read.

     Finally, students who want to participate in Reading with the Rays can read their way to winning free Rays tickets!
    Any scholar who documents 24 hours of reading this summer gets a pair of tickets to a Rays game!

    Stand Up & Show Out!
    Star Volunteer
    Congratulations to our Melrose "Volunteer of the Year" – Mr. Alfred Williams. Mr. Williams has been a dedicated volunteer throughout the 2016/2017 school year.  He has been here every day directing traffic for student arrival and dismissal.  In addition he is a member of “Men of Yesterday, Today and the Future” and has participated in numerous events.  He is an active mentor.  We appreciate all the hard work and dedication of Mr. Williams.  He volunteered 450 hours this school year! 
    We love Mr. Williams for his support of our school!
    Special Thanks to 3rd grade scholar Jamaal Miles and his family for donating the most BoxTops for Education this school year! We've collected $195.00 in funds (1,950 box tops) for our school!
