Dear Maine Memorial Families,

It is hard to believe 2020 is here! We finished 2019 with an exciting week at Maine Memorial with our annual trip to here the musical groups at the High School for their winter concert. UCC church came and played board games with all our students and gave them an amazing gift with a variety of items for them to enjoy. Our winter parties were a huge success and we ended the week with our traditional building wide sing-a-long.

We will continue our reading challenge throughout the school year. Reading to or listening to your child read is a special time for you both to enjoy.  Please continue to complete the reading challenge sheets and have your child return them to his/her teacher. 

Students should expect to go outside for recess, weather permitting, every day. If the temperature drops below 20 degrees with the wind chill factor the students do stay inside for recess. Please make sure your child(ren) comes to school with proper clothing (coats, hats, gloves, etc.) with the anticipation that it will be an outside recess day.   When weather permits, the students will go on the blacktop for recess. 

A friendly reminder: This is the time of the year where the flu starts to become more prevalent in schools. Please do not send your child if he/she has:

  • Vomited within 24 hours
  • Fever of 100° + within 24 hours
  • Diarrhea
  • Persistent cough
  • Communicable diseases (e.g.- strep) must be under treatment for 24 hours before returning

You will want to check our website on a regular basis at to read updates that are put on from the district office and Maine Memorial. Snow delays or closing will be posted on the website and a school messenger call will go out from Mr. VanFossen.

On behalf of the staff, I wish you all a new year filled with good health, joy, and happiness!


Linda Kelly, Principal
