Principal’s Message


Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,


As another school year is underway, Memorial Middle School has gotten off to a great start. I have had the pleasure of working with our children for five years. This opportunity has provided me with the insight and knowledge to lead our staff and students toward academic success. I am proud to serve as Memorial Middle School’s principal.


As the building leader, I will continue to focus on preparing our students to become college and career ready. While doing so, I look forward to assisting our staff in continued alignment with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards and overseeing daily operations of our middle school.


It is extremely important to keep the lines of communication open with our staff. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher as the need arises throughout the school year. Their emails can be found on our website under “staff.”


Once again, we at Memorial Middle School are looking forward to working together to create a conducive learning environment that is essential to our children’s success.
