On Thursday, January 26, the Supervisor of School Counseling and Student Wellness, Mrs. Gupta, kicked off an assembly at Memorial. The Fair Lawn High School Guidance Department teamed up with Memorial’s guidance counselors to present to our 8th grade students about high school requirements, upcoming high school scheduling, and all the exciting programs and clubs available to them next year at FLHS. Go Cutters!!
Memorial Middle School continues to celebrate and honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with the construction of our Dream Towers as we continue our “Do Something Challenge”. Students and staff used this opportunity to have meaningful conversations and to reflect on what it means to drive positive change through the power of connection. We have already received hundreds of clouds, with each cloud representing the dream of a Memorial student or staff member, and more clouds are still being added.
