'Tis the season for our holiday concerts. They are scheduled for Tuesday, December 9th in the Intermediate gym. The 4th and 5th graders will share their musical talents with us beginning at 5:30PM. The 6th, 7th, and 8th graders will follow at 7:00PM. The Student Senate will also be in attendance collecting money to purchase gifts from the Giving Tree.
Get in the Holiday spirit!
Student Senate is collecting money to purchase items from the community Giving Tree. Money can be turned into your child's homeroom teacher next week Monday through Friday. The homeroom that collects the most money will win an ice cream sundae party for the class.

Thanks for a successful Food Drive
Once again our very caring and sharing community came through to help many families have a plentiful Thanksgiving. This year 54 families were each given two boxes of food and a turkey for the holiday. The families were most appreciative and expressed their "thank yous" many times to our school and members of the Merton Community. Thanks to Mrs. Hafferman and her volunteers for all of their assistance.
