From the Office:
FROM the NURSE:  Cold & Flu Season - With winter upon us and the general increase in illness (especially flu-like symptoms), please pay very close attention to possible changes in your child’s health.  Flu-like symptoms can have a quick onset.  Within a few hours, a child can go from feeling perfectly fine to feeling ill.  It is in everyone’s best interests to increase their awareness of symptoms such as headache, nausea, fatigue, body aches, and fever.  If your child shows these symptoms, please keep them home to avoid transmission to others at Memorial School.  Thank you.

Burlington Bridges:   Are you retired?  Would you like to work with children?  Please Volunteer!  Bridges: Growing Older, Growing Together is an award-winning intergenerational program that promotes mutual respect, understanding, and friendships between elementary school students and older adults in the community.   Each session has a different topic.  Lessons are held by the classroom teacher.  Two volunteers are paired with 4 -5 students to do activities and talk.  Topics, include “Ethnicities, Heirlooms & Traditions,” “ Schools Then and Now, “and “Learning from Each Other.”  Next Session: Memorial Elementary School, Wednesday afternoons, 12:30 - 1:30pm, Six sessions between Feb 25 and April 15th.  For more information, contact the Senior Center at 781-270-1950.
