    The teachers at Memorial work very hard to reach every single child to teach them. Many supplement programs are offered to help every student learn. All of the arts are offered to the students in fun ways. There are many family activities held by the school both fun and educational by the school. My husband and I both attended this school as children and now our 5 year old twins are entering first grade. I can not say enough good things about this school. There are so many ways for parents to be with the school.
