FROM THE OFFICE
"And a fun time was had by all!" The Memorial School Spooky Family Fun Night was a wonderful evening for the over 90 families in attendance! Thanks so much to parents Cyndi Collins and Kerri Conley, who organized it for us! Thanks too to the high school volunteers, and to the parents who stepped forward to help with stations, craft tables, and ‘bouncy structures.’ Besides the enjoyment provided for children and families, events like this one serve to strengthen our school community. Without parent volunteers, however, they simply would not be possible. Please know that the PTO is always looking for parents to help during these events. Life is busy and commitments are many, so we thank you – in advance! – for coming forward. With your help, we can continue to make events like these part of your child’s
Memorial School Council: The Massachusetts Education Reform Act of 1993 mandates that all public schools have Councils made up of the principal, parents, staff and at least one business or community representative. The purpose of the Council is to advise the principal in the operation of the school. Meetings are held one afternoon per month (Thursdays) beginning in October and culminate in May/June. This year, our Council needs one parent representative. If you are interested in serving, please contact Mrs. Bogosh at 781-273-7647 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your interest and support!
Scholastic Book Fair is Coming! November 29th through December 3rd!
An amazing selection of books is headed our way! At the Book Fair you will find the latest and finest titles for students, as well as books of interest to parents. Mark your calendar for our Family Event where the whole family can join in the fun. And, you can contribute books to your child's classroom library. The Book Fair is a great way to get everyone excited about reading. See you there!
If you would like to volunteer and be a part of this fun event call 781-273-7656 or send an email to email@example.com. Hope to see you there. -- Mrs. Field
