Memorial Families:

Both students and staff displayed a great deal of creativity this year on Halloween.  Our hallways were filled with dinosaurs, cowboys, ghosts, and several Inside Out Characters.  The day was fun for all. Thank you to those who participated.

Last week we launched our “One Grade One Book” program for 7th-grade students who will be reading the book Wonder.   Wonder tells the uplifting story of Auggie Pullman, a boy with a facial difference who enters middle school for the first time.  The book promotes kindness and acceptance of all individuals. Memorial 7th-grade students will participate in a variety of activities during Advisory including guest speakers, difference awareness activities, in addition to reading the book.  Several of the activities include performing tasks such as having socks on their hands while attempting to button a shirt and communicating without words in order to build a better understanding of what life with a difference truly entails.

It has been the week of assemblies.  From Rachel’s Challenge, Willie Green to Kim Stenger, our students have been exposed to the multi-faceted message of kindness.  Our assemblies are essential in creating a culture of empathy. We are doing the right things at Memorial and developing students who “Choose Kind”.  

Although many of the students started the year with their required headphones or earbuds, several no longer have these items.  Please check with your child to see if they need headphones/earbuds for school. Additional earbuds are available for $1.00 in the main office.  

As always, thank you for your continued support!

Ms. Blackburn
