A MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT DR. BRIAN J. BLAKE
I would like to retract the statements made in the Memorial School Newsletter published on March 10, 2017 by Ms. Bulkley, our interim principal. The Newsletter has been removed from the site. The principal’s letter contained information endorsing certain candidates in the upcoming election and encouraging voters to support warrant articles for the schools. Under NH Law, school district employees are not allowed to endorse candidates for public office or encourage voters to vote in a certain way. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused and will take steps to ensure that it does not happen again.
Dr. Brian J. Blake, Superintendent of Schools
If your child will be five years old by September 30, 2017, and you are a resident of Newton, New Hampshire, he or she is eligible for full day kindergarten for the 2017-2018 school year.
All incoming kindergarten students will participate in a screening process. Student screenings will take place on Thursday, May 11th and Friday, May 12th.
Please call Memorial School at 603-382-5251 as soon as possible to pre-register your child and to schedule a screening appointment.

New Hampshire State Law requires all children to have had immunizations for DPT, Polio, Mumps, Measles, German Measles, Chicken Pox, and Hepatitis B prior to entry to school. They also require each child to have a complete medical examination within one year prior to entry into kindergarten.

Additional documentation required to complete the registration process includes, updated physical and immunization records, proof of residency as defined by the Sanborn Regional School District, and a government issued photo ID. The completed registration packet is due by June 9, 2017.
