It might say it's 2020, a new year - but at Memorial Day School, that doesn't mean a new beginning. Our school has been operating successfully since 1971 ... that will make this next year our 50th !! And for those 50 years, Memorial Day School has stayed true to our founding family's wishes - to operate a school in a Christian environment, in a family atmosphere, educating our students one child at a time and creating academic success for all of them.

Over the past 50 years, Memorial Day School has graduated approximately 1500 students, a good indicator of our long term commitment to small class sizes. Those alumni are caring citizens living all over the globe and working in a wide-variety of vocations from Doctors, Lawyers, Attorneys, and other professionals to airline mechanics, underwater ROV operators, automotive specialists, career military, and a huge spectrum of other employment.

With our 50th Anniversary coming soon, the school is busily making plans for many exciting activities to involve not just past students and families, but a celebration within our community.

We invite you to check out all of the advantages that Memorial Day School offers.

Our families and students thrive at Memorial Day School simply because they matter.

We are seeing many stores with their Christmas decorations on display and Christmas gifts for sale. Radio stations are playing our favorite Christmas tunes.....and the White House and Rockefeller Center have already had their giant Christmas trees delivered. YES... the holiday season is upon us and along with the music, trees and gifts - we reflect on all we have to be thankful for.

Memorial Day School, a school filled with love, family, and dedicated employees. Recently, we had a chance to go and look at "Years of Service" and we found some remarkable statistics. Pam Gross has been teaching at Memorial Day School for 34 years. Her mother, Pam Rowell, was our first head of school. Follow that with Mrs. Willcoxon working at Memorial for 30 years followed by Mrs. Farris, Mrs. King and Mr. Sussman coming to work every day for the past 25 years. We have so many more faculty and staff that have been loyal workers for 5, 10, 15, 20 years and more. That is a blessing for a school like Memorial and one that we are truly thankful for.

Memorial has almost 2000 alumni that have walked our hallways and sat in our classrooms. With those alumni came their families who have volunteered countless hours, raised thousands of dollars and continue to support our school.

This may be "the season" but at Memorial Day School, we remember and are thankful for all of those who have touched our lives and our school 12 months a year.
From all of us at the school and our Board of Directors - we wish you the happiest of days for today, tomorrow, and always.
Seasons Greetings to you all because at Memorial Day School ..... YOU matter.
