The 2018-2019 school year at Memorial Middle School is soon coming to a close!  It has been my pleasure to work with you and your children over the past school year!
 
All incoming 6th graders for the 2019-2020 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.
 
ATHLETICS!       ATHLETICS!       ATHLETICS!
 
If your child wishes to try out for a fall
sport (cross-country, girls'/boys' soccer), please click on the link at the bottom of this page 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.
 
All Fall Athletic Forms are due no later than Monday, July 29, 2019, by 9:00 a.m. to the Spotswood High School.
 
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 fall sports physical reviews.
 
Daily announcements will be made requesting students to pick up/hand in their athletic physical forms for fall sports 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 2019-2020 school year!  I wish each of you a healthy, safe, and fun-filled summer!
 
Our children are our greatest blessings!
