September 29th

Greetings Memorial Families,

As you know, the Memorial School celebrated Dot Day last week.  Mrs. Groden, our librarian, put together this great video highlighting the many fun activities that were part of the week.  Enjoy!

Please remember that tomorrow is an early release day due to teacher professional development.  There will be no PM kindergarten tomorrow. 

Ocean World Visit
Today was our first of a two day visit from Ellen Goethel.  Thanks to the Memorial PTO, Ellen is visiting with each of the kindergarten classes as part of her Explore the Ocean World program.  This hands-on presentation allows the kids to explore sea creatures, artifacts and even  make fish prints.  These are just a few of the pictures that highlight this outstanding program.

This year our teachers are involved in professional development to support instruction in both math and ELA.  Professional development takes place during Common Planning Time, Curriculum Meetings, and Early Release Days.  In addition, teachers have a 1/2 day scheduled each month in which they work with our Literacy Content Specialist, Jamee Callahan or our math consultant, Shephali Fox.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Missy Bilsborough
Memorial Principal
