From the office:

From the Disability Action Committee: Please be mindful not to block the handicap parking spaces when you queue up during drop off and pick up in front of the building. 
From the PTO:  The Toast to Memorial was a HUGE success, due to the efforts and participation of so many members of the Memorial Community! Thank you to the parents and teachers who chose the themes for the baskets and shopped for the items to fill them.  This event raised around $8000.00!  This money will be used to enrich and enhance the learning experiences for all Memorial School students.

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.

Paint Memorial Purple:  Thank you, THANK YOU...We are half way to our goal!! please send your loose change into the office to help support the American Cancer Society Relay for Life team, Miles of Memories.  If the whole school raises $430 by MARCH 31st the kids will have a Purple day.
