    Dear Parents / Guardians:


    Welcome Back Memorial Families!


    Welcome back! We are incredibly excited to begin our new year here at Memorial School. This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before! We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events and a plethora of extracurricular activities, to encourage our Huskies to be involved and stay connected!


    During the 2019-2020 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of good work, on our traditions and continued excellence in education. Our vision remains the same, to embrace opportunities, unlock potential and inspire excellence.


    Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students with many opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize opportunities in all facets of our Memorial School program Academics, the Arts, Athletics, Activities and Altruistic Endeavors.


    We look forward to a very positive and productive year together. We extend a special, year-long invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. We want and need your involvement and value your support in your child's education. Your active participation is key to the success of your young husky during his/her elementary school years. Please know that we highly value home-school communication here at Memorial School.


    Communication is vital and plays an integral role in each student's success. We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises and to stay in the know about your child's studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.


    Again, we welcome you to the Memorial family and to our wonderful learning community. It is a place alive and rich in character education, enthusiasm and a high standard of excellence. It is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound! Here's to an awesome new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day.
