Teresa Schad 3rd year as Assistant Speech Coach I just love watching the confidence grow throughout the season with each speaker. Speech teaches lifelong tools to help students with public speaking, creative writing, and dealing with adversity with subjective judges. They learn that supporting others is a key component to having a championship team. Every speaker makes a difference and is truly valued and important to our success! Plus - an amazing coaching staff is an added bonus!

Mr. Winter
Attention Parents/Guardians/Students: Melrose Area Public Schools will be implementing a new emergency/weather notification system this year. This will replace the school district voice calling / messaging system. We will be running a test on the morning of Thursday (10/17) since there is no school on this day. If your contact information in Synergy is correct you should receive a text message, titled, “Melrose District 740 systems test.” If you don’t receive a message, contact the appropriate school secretary or email isd740@isd740.org. Melrose Area School has also created an APP for your convenience. It is called “Melrose Area Public Schools” and can be downloaded on the APP STORE. This App is free and will also be a part of the notification system along with all of the information that is relevant to Melrose Area Public Schools.
