Hour of Code is December 5th-9th

December will be here before you know it and with it will come Hour of Code! This year we are aiming to provide all of our students with a coding experience and are asking for your help. If you are willing to volunteer in a classroom assisting with student activities (does not require prior coding experience) the week of December 5-9 or come talk to our students about your career in a field relating to computer science, coding, robotics, etc. on December 14th, please contact Mrs. Iwanski at iwanskim@merton.k12.wi.us.

Student Absences and Pending Vacations

Please remember that it is the parent’s responsibility to notify the office whenever your child is absent. While it’s always helpful to inform teachers, it is not the teacher’s job to clue the office in on a particular absence. Our teachers assume that parents have already done so. Absences can be phoned in to (262) 538-1130 or sent via email to emmerichb@merton.k12.wi.us. If you know in advance of an upcoming absence or vacation, please forward this information to the office as soon as possible. Thank you for your attention to this request.
