From the office:
From All of Us at Memorial School:  We wish each of you a peaceful holiday season and a relaxing winter vacation.  Whether you have already celebrated your holiday, or are looking forward to it still, may it overflow with special moments for you and your family.  And may the year ahead be a bright one, filled with good health, gladness, and peace!
A Heartfelt Thank You… to the many volunteers who help Memorial School in so many ways – running off teaching materials and notices for teachers, working in classrooms to support children’s learning, accompanying classes on field trips to provide safe out-of-school learning experiences, serving as room parents to help organize events for their child’s classroom, and participating in PTO to plan events for Memorial families and raise funds to enrich the lives of our children. These gifts of time and caring are truly appreciated, and make a world of difference at our school. Thank you so much!
The Memorial Community was treated to a wonderful Winter Concert on Wednesday - earlier in the day for the entire school, and later that evening for families and friends.  It was a treat for everyone in attendance!  THANK YOU to the Band and to the Chorus, and to singers,  and instrumentalists; to music teachers Mrs. Niu, Mrs. Rzasa, and Mr. Napierkowski for their hard work and energy in preparing 4th and 5th graders for the show; to classroom teachers for their support and flexibility in scheduling rehearsal time, to parent volunteer Mrs. Parry, high school student Justin Varghese, and to Memorial families for their support and encouragement of their children’s involvement in these enriching activities.  THANK YOU also to Mrs. York and to students in grades 1 through 5.  Their beautiful winter art projects transformed the foyer and hallway into a winter wonderland!!
Also a big THANK YOU to the fourth and fifth grade students who held a bake sale during the concert to raise money to support Memorial School’s holiday fundraisers, Burlington Food Pantry, and The Giving Tree.  Their hardwork and dedication raised $350.00.
