• Welcome to Ms. Sample’s class! I am so excited to be back at school!  We are going to have a great year in first grade. I know this year may not start the way we are used to, but trust me in knowing that we are in this together. We will work hand in hand to ensure your student is successful.

    I would like to tell you a little about myself.  My name is Melanie Sample and I am so happy for this to be my first year with the Locust Grove Elementary family.  This is also my fourth year teaching 1st grade. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Gordon State College and am currently pursuing my Master’s Degree at the University of West Georgia. I live in Henry County with my daughter, Hannah, who will be entering 6th grade this year. I enjoy baking and painting.  I am very excited about teaching this year, and getting to know your child.
