From Mr. Collier

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Spring is almost upon us and I hope that mother nature will cooperate this month as I enjoy watching our students play outside during recess. So far, we have been lucky with the weather as we really have not been impacted by the snow. Let's hope that I did not just "jinks" it by writing it in this month's newsletter!

Memorial School’s Jump Rope for Heart raised over $12,000 dollars which will benefit the American Heart Association. Great job to all of our students and parents who made this day such a success. Thank you to everyone for another great fundraising event!

Memorial Literacy Week happened last week. The week lead into NEA's Read Across America which celebrates a nation of diverse readers. A special thank you our Memorial Staff for supporting and participating in the week long activities. We ask all parents to continue to promote literacy at home and encourage you to make time to read with your child(ren) each night.

The end of the second trimester is almost here. Trimester two will officially end on Monday, March 18th. Report cards will be available on the RealTime Parent Portal starting Friday, March 22nd after 4:00 p.m. At Memorial, trimester two report cards are for students in grades one through four. These reports provide a way for our teachers to communicate with you about your child’s academic growth. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s performance, please make sure that you contact your child’s teacher as soon as possible.

As a reminder, don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour as daylight savings time begins on Sunday, March 10th.

Happy Spring!!
