News and Events
Traffic around Mercer is frustrating for families and sometimes downright dangerous for students. As our school grows, it feels like things are getting even worse. This is your chance to be part of the solution!
Coming up next Saturday, January 24th from 9:30am to noon you can join the team that will make recommendations to the City of Seattle and to the Feet First organization toward Mercer safety improvements. We will take a 2-mile walk around the school to identify ways to make it safer and easier to walk and bike to school. Students will participate by taking photos and notes during the walk (cameras provided), and adding your voices as we advocate for positive change. More details can be found in this flyer.
A second opportunity is a little ways out but we in partnership with our PTSA we are seeking a Walking School Bus Coordinator(s). Principal Carter and the PTSA are seeking 1-2 parent/guardian volunteers interested in starting a Walking School Bus system for incoming 6th graders for the fall of 2015. Volunteers should care about student safety, physical activity, and community building, and should be willing to problem-solve creatively. You will work with Feet First as part of our Safe Routes to School Grant. Time commitment: 4-5 meetings this school year in preparation for a program kick-off in September, 2015. Meeting times will be decided to best suit the schedules of individual volunteers.
If you are interested in either, please contact Jen Cole: email@example.com
Welcome to 2015! We are excited to be back and looking forward to reconnecting with our amazing students. We hope you enjoyed your winter break. As we transition back into school after a long break it is a great time to re-establish all of the great habits that make our students so successful. At Mercer we use the acronym POWER to help teach and remind students about habits of success. Our goal is for our students to be POWERful.

Thank you to all of you who were able to attend our Parent Teacher Conferences. If you were not scheduled for a conference, yet have questions regarding your student's progress, please do not hesitate to contact your teacher(s) or your grade level counselor.
Just prior to our Thankgiving Holiday you should have received your student's first quarter report card. Out students did fabulously during 1st quarter.
