We certainly hope that you have and are enjoying your summer break.  It seems like just yesterday we dismissed our students at the end of the 2020-2021 school year.
Well, we are just about two weeks away from the start of the 2021-2022 school year.  Let's all say a prayer that we can come back healthy and remain so with in person learning, no mask or social distance requirments and have all of those events we plan and look forward to.
While you have been on break, we have been busy doing some cleaning, rearranging and a makeover of our gym wing and cafeteria.  If our contractors stay on schedule, we will open up to a brighter, up-to-date, and exciting new enviornment in that building.
Our teachers have been coming back to campus to work in their rooms and get their curriculum together for the school year.
On the athletic side of the school, the coaching staffs have been doing their best to train and condition our athletes for the upcoming football, basketball, volleyball and cheer seasons.  We are excited for you to meet our new coaches and our teachers.....but for more on that - check your email.
Enjoy the next two weeks and we are excited to see you soon because.....at Memorial Day School - YOU matter.

We certainly hope that everyone is enjoying their summer break and having some time for family and friends.

While our staff does take some time off to spend with our families, we are also hard at work at school.  The renovations on our gym wing begin Thursday, June 17th and we are excited to see the results.  We will be replacing paneling, painting, installing new floors and even a surprise or two.  The Matador Cafe will also get a facelift and we can't wait to welcome all of our students and their families to a bright and shiny Matador Cafe.

Our Varsity Football and Varsity Vollleyball teams have been working hard getting ready for the 2021-2022 seasons.  If you are new to our school and are interested in playing, please contact the school office or our Athletic Director Tyler Helmly.

Mrs. Lane has been busy showing new families around our school almost every day.  Enrollment is going strong and we ask you to tell your friends about Memorial Day School.

Enjoy the rest of your vacation and we look forward to seeing everyone in just about 6 weeks.

If you are a fan of Barry Manilow, you should remember one of his best songs, "LOOKS LIKE WE MADE IT !".  In spite of the most unusual school year in history, a year of hybrid learning, on-line classes, social distancing and masks.....WE MADE IT.

We couldn't have done it without the leadership and faculty that we are lucky to have at Memorial Day School.  A staff that remains loyal to our mission and to love and care for our students because they matter.

And now we can celebrate together with our Memorial Day School families.  Yearbook dedication, honors program, baccalaureate, and of course.....GRADUATION OF THE CLASS OF 2021.

Following graduation, our administrative staff will be back at work making plans for the 2021-2022 school year - OUR 50TH ANNIVERSARY.

We look forward to welcoming back our returning students along with many new families.

During the summer months, the school will be making renovations and improvements to our gymnasium wing including painting, new floors and walls.  Our Matador Cafe will also get a makeover with new paint, walls, floors, lights, etc. 

We are excited about the future of our school and can't wait to welcome you HOME.

 

March 16, 2020 ..... the last day of our 2019-2020 school year due to the Covid19 Pandemic.  It seems only right that we return to the classroom 1 day shy of that anniversary.....March 15, 2021.
There are so many people to thank, so many people who we have never met, and so many that are part of our extended Memorial Day School family.
Thank you to our Board of Directors and our Head of School Jennifer Farris for putting in place a system where we could continue to educate our students and to keep them safe and healthy.  Purchasing the needed technology was a surprise, but doing what we need to do is what Memorial Day has always done.
Our faculty members had to learn a whole new way of teaching using on line technology, putting lesson plans "on the cloud", and communicating with their students via zoom and other methods unfamilar to them.  
BUT WE DID IT !!  WE MADE IT !!  And we are stronger and better for it.  
We will celebrate on Monday, March 15th as we open our arms to welcome home our students to 6500 Habersham Street.  We have missed their smiles and the interaction they bring in the classroom.
The worries of the pandemic are not completely over but we can see that "light at the end of the tunnel".  We will continue to pray for everyone's health and safety.  We will continue to be vigilante regarding mask, hand sanitizing, and social distance AND we will celebrate just being with each other.
Now, we can look forward to returning to some of our wonderful Memorial traditions like Junior Ring Ceremony, Prom, Honors Assemblies and, of course, Graduation.
Welcome Home.  Welcome home to a school where family and students truly do matter.
