I have some fabulous news that we want to share and celebrate.

-Memorial Drive Elementary School has been recognized by the Governor's Office of Student Achievement as…
• Performing higher than 72% of schools in the state
• As having academic growth higher than 80% of schools in the state
• And for “Beating the Odds”, meaning that we perform better than similar schools

-Our current CCRPI score is an 81. Our goal is to increase this at least to an 84 this year and to raise our score to an “A” in the very near future.
