Memorial Families:

Happy New Year and welcome to the second semester. The start of a new semester is always an exciting time. It’s a fresh beginning and a new start for our students. The second semester is an obvious time to reflect on the first half of the school year and an opportunity for students to set new goals.  I’ve challenged our students to work towards becoming the best version of themselves, improve their GPA, strive for success in the classroom, on the athletic fields and extra-curricular activities, to positively impact others.  I’m excited to witness our Memorial students’ accomplishments over the course of the next nine weeks.

Memorial will be holding our Spring conferences on Tuesday, February 26th from 5-8pm. To better meet the needs of our families, we will be implementing an online sign-up system, providing parents with the ability to schedule specific appointments with individual teachers and eliminating the need to wait in long lines.

Seventh Grade Parents/Guardians

Plans for a May 16 trip to Cedar Point are in the works.  The trip will cost approximately $70, which will include the ticket, transportation, and lunch.  Those with season passes will have a reduced cost.  More information will be forthcoming. 

Eighth Grader Parents/Guardians

This past Fall, your 8th-grade student completed the PSAT 8/9 exam.  This exam was administered to all 8th and 9th-grade students in the district. You will soon be receiving your child’s score report in the mail.  In addition, scheduling for the 2019-2020 school year is underway.  Throughout the next few weeks, 8th-grade students will be receiving information about Mentor High School course offerings, scheduling and graduation requirements, and the transition to high school.  Please encourage your students to continue these discussions with you at home and review this information. 

 Mentor High School will be hosting an “8th into 9th Grade Transition Meeting for Parents” on Wednesday, January 30th, at 7:00pm in the Mentor High School Fine Arts Center. We hope that you are able to attend this event.

As a reminder, there is no school on Monday, January 21st, 2019.  Thank you and have a fantastic week!
