    TO OUR MEMORIAL SCHOOL FAMILY:
    Even though we can't be together in person, remember that our Memorial Family will stick together and be strong!
    Let's lift each other up with kindness!
    Please reach out if there is anything that the PTA can do to help you during this time.
    And remember to share your distance learning photos with us so that we can all see some of the faces that we miss so much!  This includes teacher and staff too!
    (Send photos to memorialyearbookphotos@gmail.com and indicate if you give us permission to post the pictures on our Facebook page).
    Stay Safe and Be well!
