SPOTSWOOD NJ - Memorial Middle School's supply list is now available online for parents who might like to get a head start on the annual back-to-school shopping. The list includes school supplies for sixth, seventh and eighth grade students as well as any supplies students will need for their marking period special classes such as Computers, Art, Spanish and Public Speaking. Parents can download and print the list by visiting the Memorial Middle School webpage and looking under the news icon.

Memorial will hold their Sixth Grade Orientation on Thursday, August 23 at the Memorial Middle School Cafeteria from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. for all incoming sixth graders. Students will receive their schedules, locker numbers as well as receive tours around the building. The guided tours will be conducted by members of Memorial's National Junior Honor Society. Sixth graders will also be able to set up their lockers for the upcoming school year in addition to learning all the tricks to opening and closing the lockers. Students will also be given time to practice opening their lockers in an effort to relieve a bit of the first-day-of-school jitters often associated with the start of middle school.
