Congratualtions Memorial Students 2014 YAMMY Award Winners
Memorial Elementary won the YAMMY award for the 7th consecutive year in a row!
Each summer the McMinnville Public Library has a reading contest involving approximately 18 schools throughout Yamhill County. Students are to log their reading times and turn these into the McMinnville Public Library throughout the summer. Memorial Elementary had over 60 students participate from Kindergarten through 5th grade. There is a direct correlation between how many students participate in Summer Reading with how many classes from that school come to the library for a visit in the spring. For the past 8 years Memorial has brought all of their classes to the library for a visit. Memorial teaching staff made sure that all of the students from Memorial received a Summer Reading log when they came for their visit last Spring. Memorial had almost twice as many students finish this year than any other school. There was a 15% increase in the number of students who finished this year compared to last year.
We are proud of all the student’s reading efforts!!
Memorial Elementary is now a WatchD.O.G.S. school. This is a program sponsored by the PTA and endorsed by the Memorial staff where adult male volunteers (fathers, grandfathers, uncles, significant male role models, etc.) will volunteer for a day in the school as well as some time in their child’s classroom.
