• Traffic Information

    We understand the challenges that exist when picking up and dropping off students to school. Nonetheless, it is really important to follow all laws and procedures when picking up and dropping off students at Mercer. Alternative locations to consider include Jefferson Park, Snoqualmie Ave. or west of Mercer along 14th Ave. There are safe walking trails and crosswalks students have access to and this may prevent the long wait you might be experiencing in our parking lot or along Columbian Way. Thank you for your cooperation.

  • October 2016 Newsletter

    Dear Mercer Families,

    Thank you for helping to make our start of the school year smooth. One important part of the development of children during the middle school years is building strong and productive academic habits. You can get an early jump start by developing and supporting routines that are predictable and habit forming. For example, at this point, our students are familiar with our routines like getting to class on-time, knowing our structures of learning and what to expect when class begins, and how to use their composition books and planners, etc.

  • September Newsletter

    Dear Mercer Families, Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! As we begin to settle in and work toward supporting our students’ success, I want to take a moment to highlight systems we use toward strong school and family communication. Knowing whom to contact, staying up to speed with the events and activities, and being aware of student progress are all keys to strong school and home partnerships.
  • District Robo Call Tonight

    Tonight you will receive an automatic call informing families that robo calls are being reinstated this year to give families updates about Seattle Public Schools information. Families may opt out of robo calls if they choose. Tonight's call will remind families to make sure phone numbers and email addresses are updated. Verification forms are going out tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 16); please check them carefully and make any necessary corrections.
  • FERPA Form and the Yearbook

    Every year, our 8th grade students produce a beautiful yearbook that includes school pictures of students and staff. We want to make sure that every student who wants to be in the yearbook is in the yearbook. Parents and guardians, when you fill out your student's FERPA form, if you choose B (I do NOT consent to the release of the above directory information), you may selectively OPT IN to your student's inclusion in specific publications by circling YES to the options you choose.
