The music department at Memorial presents “Winter Rock

Wednesday, December 14th, 2016
7:00 p.m.

Your child has been working very hard towards this concert and we hope you and your family can be there to support them. Feel free to email or call us if you have any questions.

  • Concert Attire:  
Morning - The students may wear regular school clothes in the daytime - but please no t-shirts with logos or words.
Evening - Our concert is all about rock and roll music in the 1950s/early 60s. We would like the students to dress as though they were from that time period!  Here are some ideas to get you started:
  • Girls: Full skirts, cardigans, sweaters, jeans, capri pants, leather jackets, high ponytails, etc.
  • Boys:  Jeans, white t-shirts, button-down shirts, leather jackets, varsity jackets, sunglasses, black boots, greased hair, etc.
  • Have fun with your outfit choice, and don’t feel as though you have to purchase something.  See what’s in your closet, or borrow something from a friend!

  • Call Time:
Please make sure that your child arrives to the school no later than 6:40 p.m.  Band students will report to the music room, string students will report to the lesson room, and chorus students who do not play an instrument will report to the Art Room at 6:50pm.

  • Please note: ALL 4th and 5th graders must attend the Winter Concert. The students have been working so hard since September to prepare for this performance, and we need all of their wonderful voices in our ensemble!  (Please contact us in advance if you have a conflict with attendance)

* We look forward to seeing you there! *
Sincerely,
Mr. Napierkowski, Mrs. Niu, and Mrs. Rzasa

Burlington Fire Holiday Toy Task Force

The  holiday season is  fast approaching, here at Fire, we have in past years teamed up with 'Toys for Tots' to run our holiday toy drive. This has proven more and more difficult to follow through with as they no longer have local contacts and the toys have not always been picked up in time to be distributed by the holidays. That is why this year we have decided that we will not be affiliating ourselves with that program.

Despite that, we will still be collecting toys at both Fire stations. These toys will be driven in by Burlington Firefighters and donated directly to the Children's Hospital of Boston for distribution through the MA Children's hospitals. So spread the word, and let’s help put a smile on the children's faces this holiday season.

Your gift donations are just as welcome, and just as appreciated. All of the same still rules apply: new, unused, unwrapped toys for boys and girls of all ages.
Any questions, feel free to ask and we'll try to get an answer as soon as possible.




Help make a difference and donate to the
Burlington Food Pantry


Memorial School is partnering with the Burlington Food Pantry again this year to help support Burlington residents in need during the holiday season. We are looking for people to donate the following items:

cake mix
quick bread mix
cookie mix
frosting
coffee
hot cocoa mix
toothpaste
shampoo
dish detergent
individually-wrapped toilet paper

Memorial 5th Grade Student Council will be organizing the collection and collecting the items to donate to the Food Pantry. You can send items to school with your child to be put in a donation box in their classroom.

Please send in items no later than Friday, December 9, 2016.
