Welcome Families


Dear Memorial Families and Caregivers:

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year. I am beyond excited to serve as your new Principal this year as it promises to be full of fun, excitement, and learning for your child(ren) and their teachers. One of the greatest characteristics of Memorial Elementary is the genuine care and compassion shared between staff, students, and parents. Memorial is a place where staff and families come together to ensure that the children entrusted into our care to be productive, confident, compassionate members of the 21st century. 

The administrators, teachers, and support personnel at Memorial Elementary are committed to providing an enriching educational experience for all our students, while meeting the unique and individual needs of each child. We embrace serving a diverse community with many different cultures and varying academic levels. Our goal is to develop successful, lifelong learners, and for every child to reach his or her full potential. We believe that our school provides students with the opportunity to learn in a safe and respectful environment using a rigorous, standards-based curriculum. To help meet the diverse needs of our students, Memorial utilizes a multi-tiered system of support (Response to Intervention and Instruction or RtII), to continuously monitor student progress and deliver support when necessary. To encourage positive and appropriate behavior, Memorial will leverage a school-wide approach to include Positive Interventions. 

As we begin the 2022-23 school year, we embark on a new chapter of our school’s storied history. We encourage our families to be involved with our school in any way they can. Family engagement helps to provide students with the critical support and resources needed for their success. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available at Memorial, including our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and School Council, and we encourage all our families to join. 

This handbook serves as a  wealth of information about our school community. Within this handbook, you will be learning much about the school and our general operating procedures, State and Federal guidelines, and additional information regarding the Natick Public Schools system.  Please read carefully as there is much information to process. 

If you have questions or need clarification on this handbook’s content, please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected].

Once again, welcome back, and if you and your children are new to the Memorial Community, welcome! I am looking forward to another wonderful and successful school year.


Troy Holding

Proud Principal
