Throughout the school year, Melrose Elementary School has enjoyed working closely with Pure Game, a soccer program that visits campus once a week during recess to work on soccer skills with students. Beyond soccer skills, the program also works to infuse character traits such as grit, teamwork, self control, and sportsmanship with the Marlins.
Then during the week of February 10, Melrose was delighted to host special guest Joy Fawcett, 1999 World Cup Women’s Soccer Team Champion. Fawcett, who is the highest scoring defender and has been inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame, spent her time training with the students that morning.
“Thank you, Pure Game, for bringing Mrs. Fawcett to Melrose to share her knowledge of the game and how important good character is in life!” Principal Nicole Hernandez shared.
