MERCY

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2019/2020 school year.  We are looking forward to a great year for the students, the school, and the parents.  As you may know, Amanda Eaton has been the MERCY president for the past 2 years.  She has done a fantastic job at helping all of us reach our fundraising goal and we are sad to see her step out of this post.  We have a fantastic MERCY team filled for this year and look forward to working with you throughout the year.  The team is comprised of:

What is MERCY?

The Sisters of Mercy were the founding educators at our school in 1959.  They dedicated their vocation to teaching students at our school for over 40 years.  To honor them and what they did for our school, we call our Parents Club “MERCY”.  MERCY is the fundraising arm of the school and this year we have been asked to raise $115,000 through school fundraising events that will help continue to keep down the cost of our tuition.

We are hopeful that for the 2019/2020 school year, we can be focused on more community fundraising and being more parent support and to have all our parents involved in our efforts to raise money for the school.  Our goal is to help continue improving our school, keeping the cost of tuition down by fundraising opportunities, and strengthening the process of improving our school campus and classrooms through “fund a future” donations.
