     After reading the story, Miss Neslon is Missing, students work hard on a comprehension activity.
    Lindzie Paape beautifully illustrated and retold the story elements. Mackenzie Van Ausdal works on
    adding details showing that she understands the story.

           Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Melanie Burford and I will be your child's first-grade teacher this year. I'm going into my 9th full year teaching in Crown Point. I've had the pleasure of teaching first grade at Winfield Elementary and Solon Robinson, and feel blessed that to have had the opportunity to teach such wonderful students over the years.
         It has been such an amazing experience working with a superior team of teachers, students and staff at Solon! Our Solon parents have been pillars in our community; supporting our schools in many ways to help meet the needs of our students. I'm proud to be a part of such a caring community!
    We're going to have a great year in first grade!
