Family Literacy Night

Wednesday, November 29, 2017  6-7pm

We look forward to welcoming families to Memorial School on Wednesday, November 29th from 6-7pm for our annual Family Literacy Night Celebration. This year, we ask parents to bring blankets to cozy up with their children for our popular Readers Theater event.  


We are excited to offer some new workshops this year and ask that all families register for this fun, family centered event.  The registration link can be found here. Kindly register by 11/27.


**Families are encouraged to bring nonperishable food items to donate to the Medway Food Pantry**

Standards Based Elementary Report Card

The communication below was sent to our families last week. We understand that one of the links to our feedback form was not working correctly. We have corrected this link and look forward to your feedback.


As we have shared with you in previous communications,  Medway elementary schools will be introducing a standards based report card this year.  This new report card will be sent home the week of December 4th and will contain lots of information about how your child is progressing towards grade level standards.


We understand this report card will be a change for returning elementary families and we have put together the following presentation in order to give a brief overview of the report card. The presentation is linked here.


Additionally, we will be holding a Principal Tea on Tuesday, December 5th at 6:30 in the Memorial Library.  The focus of this tea will be the elementary report card.  We want to structure this time to best meet your needs, so please fill out the parent questionnaire linked here.    


Finally, as we explore different ways to connect with families, we would appreciate your feedback on our Screencastify presentation.  Please take a moment to complete this three question survey in order to help us shape future presentations and communications. The survey can be found here.
