Hello! Since our last blog post, we've had 2 new students join our Memorial community. All of the students in the ESL program have been excited to welcome their new schoolmates. They've also reflected on what it was like when they were new and learning a second language.
In addition, Kindergarten students from Mrs. Felton's class, collected over 100 welcome notes for refugee families in the United States. Many students, used their free time on snow days to make adorable cards with sweet messages of kindness. We are so proud of all of our students and look forward to their continued success! Check out the photos below to see what your students have been doing :) As always, feel free to leave a comment or email us with any questions.

Thanks to all the families who shared the beliefs about luck from their different cultures and religions. We are learning so much from one another!
