• Welcome to the 2017-18 school year at SHS.  I am delighted to have your student in my classroom this year and look forward to sharing the school year together with him/her.  As a teacher, I will endeavor to create an educational partnership with you and your student that will foster courage, determination, and passion for knowledge.  In addition to this, my commitment as an educator will be to provide your student with a nurturing and challenging educational environment that will ensure his/her academic success in Spanish 1. Since attendance and appropriate behavior at school are crucial to the learning process, it is imperative that your son/daughter attends school every day as a mature and responsible student. If you would like to be contacted regarding your student’s performance in Spanish class, you may email at kmelchiorre@southampton.k12.va.us, or call the high school office at 757-653-2751 to leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank each one of you in advance for both your support and partnership for the upcoming semester. I look forward to meeting you soon.

    Sincerely,

     Ms. Kelly Melchiorre
