A Message from Mrs. Hennessey

As this school year comes to a close, I would like to thank each Memorial School family for a wonderful school year! I have been so blessed to spend this time learning with your children and partnering with each one of you. As we transition into summer, please be aware that Miss Lisa and I are available year-round and welcome visits, phone calls, and emails during the summer vacation. Please do not hesitate to reach out at any time.

I wish all of our second graders and their families a smooth transition to Dunn School. We will miss you very much, but we know you are ready for your next steps! Thank you for making memories with the Memorial School staff over the last three years. We look forward to hearing about the successes of this very special group of students as they advance through Dunn School and beyond!

I would like to wish every Memorial School family a fun and relaxing summer! As always, please visit our website for updates. Please feel free to contact me directly at or by phone at 926-4322.

Last Day of School for 2021-22

The last day of school for current kindergarteners will be Friday, June 10th. The kindergarteners are ending their school year a little earlier so that our staff can hold screening for the incoming kindergarten class.

The last day of school for first and second grade students will be Thursday, June 16th. June 16th will be an Early Dismissal. Dismissal will be at 12:30 (this is earlier than on an ordinary Early Release Day). Parent pick-up will begin at 12:20pm on 6/16.

Note from the Health Office 

This is a reminder to parents that medication your child has in the Health Office should be picked up by 3 PM on the last day of school (Thursday, June 16th).  Medication cannot be sent home on the bus. 

Summer Reading Program

We are pleased to announce that this summer we are partnering with the New Gloucester Public Library! We will be promoting and participating in their Summer Reading Program. The program begins this month and wraps up in mid-August. Details were sent home in Totes last week. Memorial School will also be providing a special gift for the prize package all student participants receive at the end of the program. 

If you would like a sign-up form, please visit the New Gloucester Public Library. Please consider avoiding the summer slide by reading with us this summer!

Report Cards and Placement Letters

Trimester 3 Report Cards will be mailed home around June 23rd. We will also send home a supply list for the next grade level. Placement letters for current kindergartners, first graders, and second graders will be mailed home on or around August 1st. If you have any questions about the supply list, or any other aspects of placement, please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Hennessey in the Memorial School Office. 

Class of 2022 Visits Memorial School

On Friday, June 3rd, students from the class of 2022 joined us for a quick  tour of Memorial School. The students were fully decked out in their graduation attire. Students and staff enjoyed clapping for these special visitors (many of whom attended Memorial School)! Congrats to the Class of 2022!
