Dress-Up Days

Here at Memorial School we are trying to boost morale by having some fun dress-up days. February’s theme is team apparel. We are all in this together and working as a team every day to make this crazy year the best it can be. To show our great teamwork, wear any type of team apparel such as a favorite jersey, t-shirt, hat, or even scarf. Let’s cheer each other on as we finish up February!

Principal’s Fourth Grade Book Club

Sign ups recently began at Memorial School for Mrs. O’Boyle’s Zoom fourth grade book club. The book Wish by Barbara O'Connor is one of our favorites. Don't be fooled by the photo into thinking is it only about the characters you see above. The main protagonists are Charlie and Howard who are really different from each other but become best friends. Of course Wishbone, a dog, is an essential character!

Luna New Year

Memorial School continued their tradition of celebrating the Lunar New Year. Principal Laverne O’Boyle, librarian Marie Creste, school counselor Poonam Aier, and ESL teacher Mona Bennett hosted the virtual event. They read books, walked students through making paper lanterns, and viewed a slide show of students who submitted pictures of themselves in traditional attire. Over 100 students participated in the virtual event.

Snowball Fight

Students in Ms. Polster’s first grade class celebrated the snow outside by having an indoor snowball fight to practice their sight words. A fun time was had by all!
