Taxpayers, residents, students and parents will get a chance to see the new Memorial School when the school district holds an open house on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to noon.
The school was rebuilt after the original, which opened in 1956, was destroyed by fire in 2008,
Memorial School was named to honor the men and women who were killed while serving the country. The new Memorial will be dedicated to all those who have served, are currently serving and/or will serve in the Armed Services. Their service to the country is celebrated by the “Memorial Walkway” leading up the school where there are stars and plaques recognizing each of the five branches of the Armed Services.
The event will begin at 10 a.m. with a short program by the East Brunswick High School Concert Band, under the direction of Brian Toth. The band will play the “Salute to the Armed Forces Medley.” Memorial School’s choir under the direction of Sharon Harrington will also perform. Memorial students have been reading about each of the five branches and they will be sharing some of what they have learned. They will also be presenting wreaths to soldiers representing his/her branch.
Following a ribbon cutting ceremony, the school will be open for the community to see. The school is located at 14 Innes Road.
