Guidance Message

Week of November 21:
November 21: Kindness Challenge: Give a sparkle to five people.
November 22: Gratitude Challenge: Think of five things you are thankful for.


Annual "Stuff the Turkey"
November is our Month of Kindness and Gratitude.  One way we would like to practice these important traits is by sponsoring our annual food drive.  From November 17 to December 16, Memorial School will be conducting our non-perishable "Stuff the Turkey" Food Drive.  Proceeds will go directly to the Bedford Community Food Pantry, currently housed at Bedford Presbyterian Church.  We greatly appreciate any canned or boxed donations you are able to give. Items such as canned proteins (meats, fish, vegetables, etc.), pasta, rice, peanut butter, jelly, rice, flour, sugar and cereal, are especially needed.  If you would like to join us in helping our Bedford pantry, please send the items into school with your child.  If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Pleat, X23206.  Thanks for helping us support Bedford families!

Important Holiday Message from our School Nurse and Guidance Counselor
