Mr. B's Celebration Lights

What a wonderful day it was!


Thanks to the generosity of our PTO and families, and the leadership of Mrs. Tylke, Mr. Pomeroy, Mrs. Stauber, and Mrs. Monson, our students and staff are enjoying another Celebration Day. If you have a chance to stop out this afternoon, you will be amazed at the color and excitement of the day. Thank you for supporting this annual celebration of our Merton School community.

5K animal reports were awesome!

Our young and emerging learners in 5K did some terrific work on animals-surroundings, adaptations (yes they use that word) , and habits. Technology and creativity was on display as we had a wonderful turnout of parents and visitors. The students did an excellent job of reporting out about their animals.

Do You have a Backpack to share?

Backpacks for kids

Mrs. Iwanski is collecting used or new backpacks to be sent to the Dominican Republic this summer to provide kids the supplies needed at a growing school. If you have a backpack (or 2) to donate, please drop it off at either office and Mrs. Iwanski will collect them and direct them to the proper channels to have them shipped. Deadline for donating backpacks is Wednesday, June 7th, our last day of school. Here is a link with more information.

Our Celebration Day is one of the best examples we have to help everyone feel they belong to something bigger. Everyone who comes and joins in is aware of the spirit of our schools! Thank you all!
