Welcome to 1st Grade!  My name is Melanie Hayes and I am so excited to be your child's teacher!  We are going to have a great year learning to be successful readers and writers. I have taught 1st grade and 2nd grade. I have found that my heart belongs in 1st grade! I love the growth children experience as beginning readers and writers. 

The best times to reach me are before school are from 7:30 - 7:55 and after school from 2:45 - 3:20. I check my email during specials which is 9:05 to 9:55. This is a time you can also reach me. Email:
