    Memorial School is having it's first ever Memorial Bowl on Friday, February 1st,  where students will play against teachers/staff in Phys.Ed activities.  It is sure to be a fun night!

    The PTA will be helping to collect donations for the Unbroken Warriors Foundation (a nonprofit organization which aides veterans returning from deployment who are struggling with their mental health).  The PTA will also be having a Bake Sale to raise money to be used toward Memorial School Field Day expenses.

    We need volunteers to collect donations and work at our refreshment stand.  We also need donations of snacks and baked goods for our Refreshment Stand.  Please click on the link to sign up to volunteer or to donate a homemade or store bought treat!  Thanks for your help!
