Celebrating the End of the Year

There has been a lot to celebrate as we end this school year! 

Students have impressed us with their talents both
in the ESL classroom & throughout the building. 

Check out the photos below of our scholars who are also superstar performers, authors and athletes!

Reminder that Monday is the last day of school and dismissal will begin @ 11:10. 

The first day of school next year will be Tuesday, September 6th. 

Be sure to visit the Burlington Public Library 
for fun, free events over the summer to keep students engaged in reading.  We recommend that all students read for at least 20 minutes a day 
so they continue making progress over the summer. 

Burlignton Recreation Department also offers lots of activities for students. 

Finally, welcome the newest member of our Memorial ESL community
Noor-al-Imaan Omar Moussa
(Mrs. Moussa's daughter, who was born Wednesday night.)

We wish her family, and all of you,  a wonderful & fun-filled summer. 
We look forward to working with your students next year!
