Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Memorial Middle School!
 
All incoming 6th graders for the 2018-2019 school year will require a Td booster and a meningoccocal-containing vaccine prior to the start of the school year, and if they have turned 11 years of age,  as well as a Universal Child Health Record/Athletic Physical.
 
Each 8th grade student will require a Universal Child Health Record/Athletic Physical.
 
Winter Athletic Forms Due the Morning of November 2nd, 2018
 
If your child wishes to try out for a winter sport, please click the "Athletics and Extra-Curricular Activities" tab on Memorial School's website, then click the 'Forms' tab in order to download the necessary paperwork.  The athletic physical form (4 pages) needs to be completed, as well as a 'Sudden Cardiac Death' sheet, and 'Concussion Acknowledgement' form.
 
Please note, that with each new sport tried out for, a new history form, a 'sudden cardiac death' sheet, and a 'concussion acknowledgement ' form need to be completed, and current with the season.
 
A parent/guardian cannot write for 'all sports' on the history sheet.
 
Once the pediatrician has completed the physical, the district physician, Dr. Speesler,  must review/sign it.  Only after this is done is the student eligible to try out for a sport.  Announcements will be made as to when Dr. Speesler will be at the school for winter sports (girls/boys basketball, wrestling, and cheer leading) physical reviews.
 
Daily announcements are made requesting students to pick up/hand in their athletic physical forms for winter sports (girls'/boys' basketball, wrestling, and cheer leading) to the nurse.
 
I can be reached at 732-723-2200 extension 2050 or kshkolar@spsd.us
 
I look forward to working with you and your children during the 2018-2019 school year!  I wish each of you a healthy and successful year!
 
Our children are our greatest blessings!
