    Hello Memorial Families! 

    Memorial School PTA invites you to become a member for the 2019-2020 school year. Becoming a member does not require a time commitment nor does it mean you have to volunteer. Your membership donation means that you are supporting our school and our children. The PTA works closely with our school staff to provide enriching experiences through events like Assemblies and Author Visits, Book Fairs, Picture Day, Teacher Appreciaiton activites, Social events and much more!  The PTA also provides grants for teachers and gifts to the school. In just the past few years, the PTA has donated IPads, new playground equipment, an outdoor gazebo and outdoor benches!  We need your support!


    Everyone is Welcome!

    Please visit our Membership website to complete the online membership form and convieniently pay with a credit card via PayPal OR complete the paper membership form and send it to school with checks made payable to "Memorial School PTA".

    A family Membership is only $15 for the school year!

    We need some parent volunteers to help at our School Store.  The School Store takes place from 11:00am - 1:15pm. Please only sign up for a slot if you are able to stay for the entire time period.  Your responsibilities will be to help set up the items in the School Store, assist children with their purchases and clean up when lunches are over.  Remember that volunteers must also be current PTA members.  If you need to complete your PTA membership, visit our website at https://www.ebnet.org/Page/10191

    Is your child celebrating a birthday soon? The school store has gift certificates that we can distribute to your child's class. This is a great substitution for traditional goody bags. To purchase gift certificates, you must fill out a request form in advance. Click on the link to download the form.
