Memorial Families:


The third quarter will end on March 12th, and  hopefully Mother Nature will send some warm weather our way.  This year’s Spring break will begin Friday, March 13th, and students will return to school on Monday, March 23rd. This is the top of the mountain for us, the rest is downhill.  It’s time to buckle down and finish the year strong.

Memorial students will begin state testing in April. We want to provide Memorial students with every advantage to be successful on the state tests and perform at the high level we know our students are prepared for.

 

Memorial AIR Testing Dates:

Please make every attempt for your student to be present during the testing dates

April 1st

  • ELA (6th, 7th, 8th Grade)

April 21st

  • MATH (6th, 7th, 8th Grade)

April 23rd

SCIENCE (8th Grade)

 

This year’s spring Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Tuesday, February 25th from 5:00-8:00 PM.  This is an opportunity for you to learn about the academic, behavioral, and social well-being of your child and to discuss questions or concerns about your child's grades. I am a strong advocate of putting students in the driver’s seat of their own education. Education is a partnership between student, teacher, and parent(s). At Memorial we want our students to take responsibility for their learning and academic performance. I encourage your student to be an active participant in Memorial’s conferences and to bring their device to the event.  Each conference will last approximately 5 minutes and will provide an opportunity for you to hear from your own child about his/her learning. This will allow your child to improve their communication, take ownership of their learning, and to increase their leadership skills. 

 

In order to help conferences run more smoothly and be respectful of your time, Memorial has implemented online scheduling for our conferences.  In order to attend conferences, you must sign up.  You can click on the following link to sign up for your conference. We are excited to be able to provide this service to you.

Enjoy the weekend!
