Principals Report

  • Of the $10,000 that was gifted to Memorial about half has been spent. We have purchased easels ($2,600), $500 Brain Pop Computer program, $500 on books, $500 on reading stools and a data sign for our entryway. $5,100 spent so far. We are saving the rest because we would like to purchase Chrome Books (class set & cart) for $10,000.
  • We won $750 for doing our Backpacks & Snacks from the Carpenters Union. Put that money into the account with the $5,100 to be used for the Chrome Books.
