Moving?  Parents of children who are moving, and leaving Memorial School, should notify the office as soon as their plans are finalized.  This will ensure that appropriate arrangements are made for the transferring of school records, and allow for registration and placement in their new school.  Thank you.

Thank you!:  A huge thank you for the generous donations to help fill the recess bins with equipment.

From the PTO:  Thank you to all the families who attended Saturday’s Art Show and Pancake Breakfast -we had a great morning and hope you did too.  We want to thank the many parents who came out bright and early to flip pancakes, set up the cafeteria, greet families and serve food.   Of course, special thanks to Mrs. York for inspiring the kids to create such incredible artwork and for outdoing herself every year with an amazing display!
