Memorial High School

Campus Newsletter-updated 9/20/21

Principal Message

Today marks the beginning of the 2nd 6 weeks. We want to remind parents that students grades will be available through Schoology. You can find more information on how to access grades at Schoology for Parents (smore.com) You can also receive support from our counseling team or assistant principals.


During the next two weeks, Ms. Elizondo, senior counselor, will be meeting with seniors during English class to discuss transcripts and graduation status. Parents, you can reach out to Ms. Elizondo, pelizondo@eisd.net, if you would like to discuss graduation requirements and the graduation status of your child.


Our first Coffee with the Principal will take place on September 28th, at 9 AM in the auditorium. Please reach out to Ms. Guedea linda.guedea@eisd.net, if you have any questions.


In the first six weeks, we noticed that some students were leaving campus during the school day to the near by Valero. We want to remind students and parents that we are a closed campus, meaning that students are not allowed to leave school during the school day to get food. Please reach out to our assistant principals if you have any questions about this policy.


I'm honored to serve our Memorial community, where our Mission is to graduate all of our students to be productive citizens who are college and career ready. Our Memorial staff is committed to supporting each student and family we serve, so please reach out to us if you need any assistance. In collaboration with our families, we ask that parents support their child by:


  • Making sure your child is in school by 8:30, and remind your child to attend all classes.
  • Communicating with our staff when your child will be absent.
  • Having your child join a club or organization.
  • Checking in on your child's academic progress and communicating with our staff if assistance is needed.



Our administrative and counseling team is here to support you. Below you will see contact information for your child's assistant principal and counselor.


I look forward to meeting you and supporting your family through out the year. Please fill free to contact me if you need assistance. I can be reached at 210-898-4110 x 8301 or at miguel.elizondo@eisd.net . Blessings to each of you and your families.


Respectfully,


Mr. Elizondo

My name is Kristeena Dewberry and I am the new SEL Counselor at Memorial High School. I’m excited to join the Minutemen team and look forward to providing services to students, staff, and the community. SEL stands for social emotional learning, so these services will be focused on meeting the social and emotional needs of the campus. Examples of the type of services I will be providing include: individual and group counseling, classroom guidance lessons, and training/education to staff and caregivers on the importance of social emotional wellness for themselves and their students. I look forward to learning more about this amazing community.
