Memorial Families,

It’s hard to believe the 2018-2019 school year has come to an end. As I reflect on our journey this year, I’m impressed with the many accomplishments of our students and teachers. Our overarching goal at Memorial for this year was “to implement reading, writing, and discussion in ALL content areas.”   The Memorial staff successfully tackled the challenge. In addition to making a concerted effort to increase the quantity and complexity of reading, writing, and discussion in our classrooms, this year we implemented the “One Grade One Book” program at two grade levels at Memorial. The philosophy of “One Grade One Book” is to enhance literacy skills by having a grade level read one literary selection and provide an opportunity for students and staff to discuss the insights they gathered from the common book.  

Our building is filled with hard working and high performing individuals. Memorial is an amazing school community with endless potential.  Our students should be celebrated for their excellence in the classroom, in the arts, on the athletic fields, and throughout the community. Memorial staff members are true professionals who are responsible for making Memorial a top notch middle school.  They have done an amazing job and their dedication has made me proud to be part of the Memorial team. It has been a rewarding year.

On behalf of the Memorial staff, I would like to thank our parents for your support this year.  

Happy Summer!

Ericka Blackburn
