Mr. Posick's Friday Thoughts

The month of May was Teacher Appreciation Month. We had an opportunity to show our appreciation to our Merton teachers, especially during Teacher Appreciation Week, but I know for a fact that our teachers receive notes and phone calls of appreciation throughout the school year. We know that you trust us with your child each and every day and we make every effort to live up to the trust and faith that you have in us.

"The Choking Game"

This week I met with all 7th and 8th grade students about "The Choking Game". It is far from a game. It is something that children have experimented with for years. It came to my attention that this was being tried by a small minority of our students but even one child attempting this is too much. I sent a letter home to all 7th and 8th grade parents and thought that I would include it in my letter to all families today. Here is a link to the letter.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
