A Message from Mrs. Hennessey

The staff of Memorial School thank you for your continued support and partnership. We appreciate all our families are doing to support children at home with their learning. We know that every aspect of life is more complicated this year, and we are so grateful for your perseverance, collaboration, and tenacity as we round the corner into the last fourth of the school year.

Thank you to all of our families who attended our Virtual Spring Family Night Event on April 7th! We had so much fun with author/illustrator Marty Kelley. It was so nice to see our students, their siblings (including some special Memorial School alumni!) and parents. Thank you for joining us for this awesome event!

Please feel free to contact me directly at ahennessey@sad15.org or (207) 926-4322. Thank you for all that you do to support Memorial School!

2020–2021 Kindergarten Registration & Screening

We have begun registering students for the kindergarten class of 2021-2022! Parents of students who will be five on or before October 15, 2021, click the link on the left to register your child for kindergarten. We can’t wait to welcome our incoming students into our Memorial community!

We plan to hold Kindergarten Screening in-person this June. More information to come! Registration appointments will be made for incoming K students (who have pre-registered at the link) and will be distributed in late April.. If you have any questions about the registration or screening process, please contact Amanda Hennessey at 926-4322 or ahennessey@sad15.org.

School Calendar Update

The last day of school for students was recently updated. It will now be Friday, June 11th. Thank you!

Memorial School’s Title 1 Program

Annually, Memorial School renews its application to receive Title I funding for programs and staffing. Being a school-wide Title I school means that we receive federal funds to support student learning, and we are able to expend these funds across the whole school instead of only for specific students. In order to maintain this status and funding, the district must reapply annually. This re-application will be submitted to the state by June 1. Any member of the community that wishes to have more information or give input on our district’s Title 1 plans or applications should contact Amanda Hennessey, Memorial School Principal at ahennessey@sad15.org and/or Chanda Turner, Director of Curriculum at cturner@sad15.org. Title I programming will also be a discussion topic at an upcoming School Improvement Team meeting; please contact Mrs. Hennessey if you are interested in joining us for that meeting.

Thank you, School Improvement Team!

Thank you so much to the parents and staff who serve on our Memorial School Improvement Team! We meet monthly to write school goals, assess our progress, share student data, and plan family engagement events. Thank you to parents Sarah Rodriguez, Wendy Collet, and Rebecca McCorry for your participation, hard work, and insights! Thank you to school staff members Lynn Montgomery, Carrie Miskin, and Mackenzie Yeaton for your continued work on this committee as well. We will meet one more time this year on May 6th at 4:30 via Zoom. We always welcome new members. Please feel free to reach out to Mrs. Hennessey (ahennessey@sad15.org) if you are interested in joining us!

Daily Health Checks

Please remember parents must conduct daily health assessments of each child before boarding the school bus or entering a school building. By sending your child to school, you are indicating that you have conducted a health assessment that determines it is safe to send your child to school. The health assessment can be found at: https://msad15.org/covid-19-pre-screening-tool-for-school-attendance/
