Open house held for Memorial School

Last Saturday, November 17, the school district of East Brunswick, New Jersey held an open house in the morning for the new Memorial Elementary School, which was rebuilt after the original school, opened in 1956, was destroyed by a 2008 fire. The school district no doubt used poster printing and flyer printing to make the announcement of the open house to the public, so that as many residents, taxpayers, parents, and students in the community could see the new school.
The event started at 10:00 am with the East Brunswick High School Concert Band performing a short program that included the medley of the ‘Salute to the Armed Forces’. This was followed by a performance by the choir of the Memorial School. Students in the school have been learning about the five branches of the armed services and then presented some of their thoughts and observations. Wreaths were presented to soldiers to represent his or her respective branch. This was followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The name of the school was originally established as a way to honor those who are killed while they are serving the country. The dedication of the new school is for all those who previously served, are currently serving, and will be serving their country in the Armed Forces of the United States. There are plaques and stars representing each of the branches of the armed services of the school, which are lead to by a “Memorial Walkway”.
