Principal's Message

Our amazing technology teacher, Mrs. Seymour, taught our Student Ambassadors how to use green screen technology to create our very first Memorial Newscast! The students have been working to write scripts and record the newscast independently. We were so excited to see the first newscast! Stay tuned for more as they plan to create and share these on a regular basis.

This type of project is a great example of the talent and dedication of our students. We are so proud of all of them!

Have a great vacation week!

Best,

John
