Japan Project Update
One of the things they showed us is a Japanese website (I believe it is from a museum in the area of Shimazu School) that highlights the package we sent them and the one they sent us. Check out the link below (scroll down on the website past the pictures of Ambassador Kennedy on the beach). http://www.nakisuna.jp/2015/12/
Survey...shooting for 100% parent participation!
Every year, the School Improvement Council crafts a school improvement plan. The plan is comprised of goal areas and action steps that help guide overall improvement at our school. This process is informed by our staff, parent, and community representatives along with input from all of you. Would you be so kind as to take a few moments out of your day to respond to the survey below? It would be great if all parents completed the survey from their perspective to help us guide the development of our plan. It will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to let us know what we are doing well and where we should focus our attention in the coming years!
Here is the link to the parent survey:

Do you ever shop at Crosby's? We sure do! Please join us, as Manchester Memorial once again participates in the "Tapes for Education" program with Crosby's Market! Simply bring or send your Crosby's register receipts in to school. There is a red Crosby's bin by the office. The PTO will collect and submit them for FREE equipment, such as computers, printers, AV and athletic equipment, for Memorial School. Thank you for participating in this great, easy program!
