Mercury Monday Memo

January 7, 2013

Happy New Year!

I hope that you had a wonderful Winter Break with your families! Is your child is ready to finish up the second grading period with his/her best efforts? Friday, January 18 is the last day of the 2nd grading period/first semester. It is very important that your child works to complete all assignments and looks for any missing assignments that can be turned in over these two weeks to improve their grade in each subject. Let's finish this grading period strong! All students will have a fresh start as they begin the 3rd grading period/second semester on January 23.

January is shaping up to be quite a month for Mercury Online Academy students! Be sure to read each Monday Memo completely to be kept up to date with all that is happening. Your support and involvement in your child's education makes a tremendous difference!
