Today at Memorial, first grade students explored the properties of solids and liquids through hands-on exploration.  Working with teachers and parent volunteers, the kids made predictions about the magnetism and hardness of objects as well as whether they rolled or stacked and would sink or float.   They recorded their predictions and then tested their theories.  Thanks to all of our volunteers!

Dear Memorial Families,

On Friday, November 4th, kindergarten and first grade students attended a PTO sponsored Veterans Day assembly.  Thank you to Captain and Cadet Wilson for teaching us about veterans, the five branches of the military and the meaning of freedom.  We loved singing patriotic songs and seeing photos of the many different ways that members of the army, navy, marines, air force and coast guard serve our country.   

Thank you to all veterans who are serving or who have served our country.  We are so grateful for your service.

Dear Memorial Families,

Please take a moment to check out a few of the upcoming events that we have at Memorial.
Have a great weekend!

When: Monday, November 7 @ 9AM

Where: Memorial School Teachers' Room
What: Parent/Teacher Conferences

We’re growing a

Storybook Pumpkin Patch

at The Memorial School Library starting October 18

Students are invited to decorate a pumpkin to look like a favorite book character. Just bring it to the library to plant in our
Storybook Pumpkin Patch!

    • Think of your favorite book and design a pumpkin based on your favorite character from that book.
    • Purchase a pumpkin that is no larger in size than a basketball - smaller is good too!
    • Gather your decorating supplies!  Acrylic paints or permanent markers work best.  Watercolors tend to run, and spray paint will gradually dissolve the pumpkin. Other options include adding materials such as yarn, buttons, wiggly eyes, etc.    
    • Decorate your pumpkin without carving, cutting, or poking holes in it.  
    • Bring your pumpkin and entry page to school beginning Tuesday, October 18th.
    • Pumpkins go home anytime after Tuesday, November 1st (Tues-Fri please)  If your child needs assistance getting it home, please make arrangements to do this. Pumpkins that begin to rot will be tossed.
    • This is an at home activity and participation is completely voluntary.
