More in store for February!

February is a busy month. Last week we started the month with Catholic Schools Week. Thank you to everyone who helped make our week a success!


This week we will be celebrating the beginning of the Lenten Season with Ash Wednesday Mass at 9am. Our students will receive blessed ashes on their foreheads to remind them that the things of this world are passing and we are destined for eternal life with our Lord.


This Friday we will celebrate Valentine's Day with a party for PK-1st grade and a dance for grades 2-8. More information can be found below.


Next week we will host our annual Black History Month presentation in the church on Thursday, February 18th at 6pm. Please invite your family and friends to see the presentation our students have been working on for several weeks. Afterwards, join us at the school for refreshments and tour the hallway to see the hard work our students have put into learning about the lives of amazing African Americans throughout history. This is a great opportunity to show off your school to friends and neighbors who might also benefit from a Mercy education!


Have a great week, and we look forward to seeing you soon!


If there is anything we can do for you, please let us know!
