This year the Memorial School combined their traditional field day celebration with a student ground breaking. Memorial students were provided ceremonial hard hats by the PTO and General Contractor, CTA. Earlier in the week students signed one of the beams that will be installed in the building. I know that Memorial is also working on a time capsule that will be contained inside the construction to be opened in 50 years.
It is clear from our brief visit that the Memorial students take great pride in the construction happening in their front yard.
