Keeping in mind that eNotes does not do student assignment for them, we can look at memo writing and suggest a small part of a sample.

Memos are a part of business communications that are informal and, sometimes, draft documents. Memos may have a prescribed format on specialized "Memo" stationery that is less formal than company letterhead. Yet the first lines are given to the company's name and address and the date, while the next lines are for the To, From, and Subject information.

In the first paragraph or two, the memo states a case about what is to be considered of done. It might start something this:
