Retiring educators

This week is the last full 5-day week for four incredible educators- Ms. Tracey McGinnis, Mr. John Rheineck, Mrs. Beth Rosen, and Mrs. Barb Schiellack. They have dedicated their lives to teaching our kids, and some of them have even taught you! We are excited for the adventures that will come in their "retirement" years, but we are also sad that we won't see them regularly. They have taught tens of thousands of children their content, but more importantly, they have taught them to be wonderful people. We will miss them!

Our latest staff blog

Every week, I create a "nuts and bolts" for the Intermediate staff. It has some words of wisdom from me (That's a stretch!) as well as links to tweets, blogs, and quotes. I asked all staff to provide me a few sentences sharing what they are most proud of from school year. Here is the link to the blog. There are some really great proud moments.

Celebration Day

Today is our annual Celebration Day. I decided to email the smore early in case you have a chance to come by school to see the sea of colors as all students 4K-8th grade are dressed in brightly colored shirts. Look for pictures of the day on our twitter account (@mertonint). If you're not on twitter, you can check out the feed on our webpage,
