    Take a look at
What's New in our web. Our  mascot for our school is Squirt the Whale.  I hope that by viewing these pages you will get a better understanding of the daily routine in our 1/2 day Kindergarten here at Melville Elementary School in the Portsmouth, Rhode Island School District.  We recite The Melville Pledge daily.  The AM Session runs from 8:30-11:05, and the PM session, from 12:05-2:30. Rest assured that your child  is in a very safe and nurturing environment. The staff are highly qualified teachers and professionals who work their hardest to fulfill the Goal and Mission Statement. The Children's Work is very exciting and viewable. Don't forget to visit the Links page. It  has additional informative and fun sites for the whole family. Enjoy yourself and please comment via email.  I will get back to you as soon as I can.  Enjoy!
