The new year is just a month old and our school is off and running to another great year.
Our school was asked to collect winter clothing for the homeless in Savannah.  Once again, our families responded with an overwhelming enthusiasm donating over 200 items including mostly coats, sweaters, scarves and blankets.  It wasn’t long ago when the Memorial Day School community came together to collect over 5 tons of food and water for those families touched by the hurricanes and flooding.
Last week, United States Congressman Buddy Carter visited our school.  Congressman Carter walked our hallways visiting each classroom and interacting with our students and faculty.  He saw first hand the spirit of family and actively engaged students in their learning environments.  We look forward to more visits by our elected officials throughout the school year.
Re-enrollment has begun and already we are seeing a flood of new families interested in bringing their students to our special school.  Parents want the best for their students and are excited to see our small classroom sizes with teachers able to work with students on an individual basis.
Memorial Day School has been doing this for over 45 years and we will continue for many more years to come.
