September 6, 2018 Dear Parents,

Welcome to Memorial Middle School! Memorial Middle School continues its commitment to provide an outstanding educational program for all of its students. We are dedicated to providing every child with diverse opportunities for personal growth and success through a dynamic school experience. With this in mind, your child/children will encounter a wide variety of learning experiences and exploration of new ideas throughout the school year. Our focus will be to maximize the potential of all students and to further develop their minds and talents. 

We continue to make upgrades to our curriculum, technology, and our facility to enhance learning and to ensure a safe learning environment.  We are confident that our teachers will have the tools to provide quality instruction that will help students attain academic success. However, parent involvement continues to be the key component of student success. I encourage parents to support teachers by holding their children accountable for their work, and ask that they support their children with assignments and projects. I invite parents to get involved by volunteering in your child’s classroom, and getting involved in any other school activities. 

My vision, expectations, and goals for Memorial Middle School are as follows….

  • Education should be your child’s primary focus.
  • Administrators, teachers, and students should give 110%.
  • Communication is the key to any successful organization.
  • Teachers should engage every child in learning.
  • Students attain academic success with quality instruction, high expectations, and parent support.
  • Classroom instruction should be protected from unnecessary distractions.
  • Parents are a school’s greatest resource for promoting and sustaining student learning.

I am steadfast about these beliefs and I am committed to pursuing them; but it will be impossible to achieve educational success without your help. Please stress the importance of learning with your children, which includes highlighting hard work, not being tardy, and not distracting the classroom environment. I also ask that you enhance learning by requiring students to dedicate time each day for reading at home, and by enforcing the completion of your child’s assignments. Our school accepts the challenge to advance every student, and we need your involvement in the learning process, to do so. We believe that all children can achieve success, with hard work, and the support of parents and teachers working together. I look forward to working with parents and teachers to provide all Memorial School students with an academic foundation for success. 

Sincerely, 

Mr. Robert Porfido
Principal
Memorial Middle School
