  • October 2017 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. For example, at this point, our students are familiar with school routines like getting to class on-time, knowing our structures for learning and what to expect when class begins, and how to use their composition books and planners, etc. At school, we work hard to establish routines to support productive habits and behaviors.

    At home, it is also important to establish habits and routines, particularly in these middle school years. Establishing routines and procedures create consistent behaviors that result in an increase in student performance. Developing these habits during the middle school years is important toward long-term success.

Knowing whom to contact, staying up to speed with the events and activities, and being aware of student progress are all keys to student success and component of strong school and home partnership.
