2017 Memorial Scholastic Book Fair
The 2017 Memorial Scholastic Book Fair has been scheduled for Monday, November 27th - Friday, December 1st.  An amazing selection of books will be available!  The Book Fair is a great way to get everyone excited about reading.   
Mrs. Myer, the Librarian at Memorial School is looking for volunteers to set up, work with students during the Book Fair and clean up.  If interested, sign up here.  Stay tuned for more Information.

NOTES FROM THE OFFICE
School Attendance: If your child is going to be absent, you MUST call the School Absentee Line at 781-273-7649 BEFORE 8:10 am on the day of the absence.  An answering machine will record your message.  Please leave your Child’s name, grade level, teacher’s name and reason for the absence.


Note Required for a Change in Dismissal Plans:
In the interest of safety, on any day that a child’s routine transportation plans are altered, a note must be written and signed by a parent or guardian to the classroom teacher to describe the change.  Occasionally an emergency situation arises during the day that necessitates a change.  If such an emergency should arise and it is necessary to change your child’s transportation plans during the school day, please contact the office by phone (781-270-1721) before your child’s scheduled lunchtime to ensure that his or her teacher receives the information. (Do not call the teacher directly, or email requests, as these messages may not be received before the end of the day.) Please understand that due to the busy-ness of dismissal time and our concern about student safety, students can not be dismissed without your sending in a note to the teacher or notifying the office before students’ scheduled lunch time. Buses are held until all children are accounted for, impacting the timely departure of the buses and students’ arrival time at home.  Thank  you in advance for helping us to keep “Memorial Kids” safe by informing us of changes well before dismissal time.






MONTH OF NOVEMBER
The Burlington Food Pantry is having a Toothpaste and Toothbrush Drive
for the whole month of November!  We are very thankful for your donation of
new toothbrushes and toothpaste to help Burlington families in need.  There
will be a donation box at the school office.  Thank you for your support!
















Just a reminder from the nurse as we approach cold and flu season, please help us track illness trends at school by letting us know why your child is absent when you call.

It is necessary to register spring teams early as our league requires us to submit rosters well in advance of the start of the season so they may have enough time to set up all the schedules.  We need to know how many children are playing so we can register the correct number of teams to the league. We encourage everyone to register early so you will not be put on the waiting list.
