Principal Update

Wednesday Early Release Day (12:30 PM) for all students – No ASCA Classes!

Memorial-Spaulding Families,

During this week’s early release afternoon, all faculty and staff members will be engaging in ongoing training called Courageous Conversations about Race. Through this training series staff members explore implicit bias and how it may be impacting teaching and learning within our school – and, of course, how to ensure we create equity for our students of color.  

Please join us for this month’s PTO meeting to be held on Thursday, February 7th at 7pm at the school (Teacher’s Lounge). RSVP if you plan to attend.

The Kids Heart Challenge Fundraiser is taking place during the month of February.  For more information click HERE.

Now that snow, ice and cold weather is here, please be sure your child is appropriately dressed for recess. Hats, gloves, snow pants and boots for play in the snow – otherwise your child will be asked to stay out of the snow.

The International Festival is on the horizon, March 21st!  Click HERE for more information – and learn how to sign up for a table and/or a performance.

Did you know we now have a Friday Morning Concert Series?  This is a time for us to showcase the talent of experienced Memorial-Spaulding musicians – and it takes place during the 10 minute arrival window (8:20-8:30). If your child has achieved a high level of performance on his or her instrument – let me know and I will forward your contact information to the FMCS parent coordinator.  Parents – are you an accomplished musician who would like to share your talent? You are welcome to play on Friday mornings too! Simply respond to this email and let me know!

Considering travel plans during the 2019-20 school year?  Please make every effort to avoid pulling your child out of school.  Click HERE to see next year’s school calendar.

Schoolwide PJ Day on Friday, February 15th. All students are welcome to wear school-appropriate sleepwear that day.
