NEW NEWS


Guidance Message
Words of the Month for June: Fairness and Cooperation
Week of June 12:
June 14: Review of all Words of the Month/Character Traits.  Phrase of the day: “Character is defined as what we do when we think no one is looking.”  It is what we do when no one is looking that counts.  It takes a long time to grow into a person with all the character traits.  Peacemaker Challenge: Keep practicing all the words of the month to become a peacemaker.
June 16: Final words. Peacemaker Challenge: Spread peace wherever you go and have a safe, healthy and fun summer!

Last Day
Just a reminder that Monday, June 19th is the last day of school. Dismissal is at 12:20.

Found
In the front lobby, a tan Oticon hearing aide and shoe was found. Please contact the main office if you lost a hearing aide.

Fourth Grade Play
A very special thank you to Kristian Carson, Lisa Haynes, Leslie Fredette and the fourth grade team for the work they did to make "Robin Hood, The Musical" come to life. The fourth grade actors/actresses were phenomenal.

Medication Pick Up Reminder
Dear Parents:
Please remember to pick up your child's medication in the health office by the last day of school.  Medications that are not picked up will be discarded.
If your child will need medication at school next school year they will require a new doctor's order for each new school year.  Please feel free to email or call with any questions. 
 It has been a pleasure to be the school nurse at Memorial School.  
Have a wonderful, relaxing and healthy summer!
Thanks,
Anna Cook
School Nurse
