On behalf of the staff at Memorial Elementary School , I would like to welcome you to the Bethel Memorial Elementary School's homepage. Memorial is comprised of approximately 336 K-4 students and a dedicated, highly qualified, child-centered staff of over 40.

At Memorial, we are committed to making each student's elementary years a fruitful experience that instills a positive attitude toward lifelong learning in every child. The high standards of achievement that we set, prepares students for the challenges they will face in our ever-changing world. In addition, our focus on academic growth encompasses the social and emotional development of our students, as we stress personal responsibility, self-discipline, and respect for others. We are proud to provide a safe and caring learning environment that provides each of our students' access to success.

Our active PTA also provides students, staff and parents with enriching activities and delightful experiences. They diligently fundraise, as well as, work many hours to help Memorial be a wonderful place to learn.
