Benjamin Franklin once said, “Tell me, and I’ll forget. Teach me, and I’ll remember. Involve me, and I’ll learn.” It is our duty to actively involve our students, parents, teachers, so that learning can take place every day. I am honored and privileged to be the new principal at Memorial Elementary and look forward to working with our students, parents and community!
