Mission: Melcher Elementary strives daily to create a safe learning environment that meets the needs of the total child. Continuous academic growth will be enhanced by a rigorous child-centered curriculum with additional emphasis placed on social, physical, and emotional health.
Vision: The vision of Melcher’s wellness plan is to promote a positive change for students and their families in nutrition, physical exercise and social-emotional wellness to enhance intellectual growth. George Melcher Elementary School’s theme is a nine component model created to address the emotional and physical needs of everyone in the school setting: students, teachers and administrators - and to also reach out to the parents and the community.
KCPS is contacting parents individually to address how these changes will impact their children and to share plans to make sure the transition is as smooth as possible. Interim Superintendent Al Tunis and his team have already been hard at work developing plans to make this a positive experience for every student, parent and guardian, staff member and administrator. Parents and guardians can visit www.kcpublicschools.org/FindYourSchool to check which school their children will attend under the Master Plan based on their current addresses. Parents and guardians can also contact the KCPS Master Plan Hotline by calling 816-418-8825 (open 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Feb. 26; and 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Feb. 29-March 4) or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Safety and security are top priorities in Kansas City Public Schools. We respect the trust that families place in us with their children, and we are always looking for innovative ways to make our schools safer and more secure. With that in mind, we’re unveiling a new visitor management system for the 2015-2016 school year: Hall Pass.
Kansas City Public Schools receive federal funds for Title I. As a parent of a student in a Title I school, and in accordance with the ESEA Section 1111(h) (6) PARENTS RIGHT-TO-KNOW, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child. Federal law allows you to ask for certain information about your child’s classroom teachers, and requires the school to give you this information in a timely manner.
