On behalf of the students and staff, I welcome you to Melcher-Dallas Elementary!  Our elementary school currently reflects a student enrollment of over 255 students in preschool through sixth grade. We have excellent dedicated teachers and support staff, committed to provide a safe and positive learning environment that promotes and encourages the growth of all children. Our staff includes a guidance counselor, teacher librarian, and part-time nurse, as well as full- and part-time staff members who teach the areas of music, physical education, and instrumental music. Students with unique needs are supported by special education teachers, and a Reading Recovery, and Reading Support teacher. Our Homework Club also serves our students requiring an enriched curriculum. The staff and students of Melcher-Dallas Elementary are proud to be a part of the Melcher-Dallas Community School District. I invite you to explore our website and read about our school. Please feel free to visit our school or contact us for more information. We would love to share with you our building, wonderful staff and students along with the great things happening at Melcher-Dallas Elementary.

Mr. Horstman, Elementary Principal
