A Message from Our Principal

Dear Students, Parents, and Friends,

Visitors to Memorial School often remark on what a special place it is. I am proud of the vibrant atmosphere that results from our excellent teaching and support staff as well as generous family and community involvement. The warm and nurturing environment of our school engages and challenges all kinds of learners, celebrates our area's rich diversity, and promotes kindness and empathy in our students.

Our reading and writing workshop models, along with an inquiry-based science curriculum, are fundamental ways in which we develop the essential literacy, inquiry, and technological skills students need for the complex information age of today. We understand how important the elementary school years are in developing citizens who can work both collaboratively with peers to critically solve problems as well as become independent learners.

We invite you to be a part of Memorial School, a community of lifelong learners!
