Merritt Academy Latest News

Merritt News 08/02/2017

Greetings!  We hope everyone is having a great summer break!  A couple of reminders/news from the Academy:

1.  Uniform/Paperwork Day-  Is tomorrow, August 3rd from 1:00-7:00.  You will be able to order uniforms (We have a new K-12th grade uniform color available for the 2017-2018 school year, BLACK), fill out important paperwork like:  transportation survey,  September lunch menus, free and reduced lunch applications, latchkey and more.   

**  In order to get the most accurate student count possible BEFORE the first day of school we are asking each Merritt family to contact the school this week if you are unable to attend uniform/paperwork day on August 3rd.  If we do not hear from your family on or

before August 3rd we will be in contact with you to check on your child's status.  We are open from August 2nd- August 11th from 9:00-12:00 Monday-Thursday.  Starting August 14th we will be open Monday-Friday 9:00-2:00.  

***  Taking care of all the above mentioned paperwork ensures your child is ready to start school on September 5th.  Please make every effort to come pick up the required paperwork on or before August 3rd.  We have waiting lists in some grade levels and important decisions will be made based upon the information we accumulate that week.  

2.  Transportation-  Even if you used Merritt’s transportation last year you still need to sign up for the 2017-2018 school year.  Having a spot last year does not guarantee a spot for this upcoming school year.   Busing assignments then will be handed out at our Open House on August 30th. 

3.   Box Tops for Free Uniform Shirts-   Bring your saved box tops when ordering uniform shirts in August.  200 box tops equals one free short-sleeved uniform shirt! 

4.  Parent Incentive Flier-  Merritt Academy has limited openings in most grade levels for the 2017-2018 school year.  However, we are still looking for prospective families for next school year.  Please read through the flier attached for incentives that could be earned if you bring a new family into Merritt Academy. It could earn/save you almost $500.00! We have open houses for prospective families here on August 8th and August 15th @ 6:00 p.m.

5.  Merritt Academy Pre School-12th Grade Open House-  August 30th from 5:30-7:00. This is the night where your family will be able to meet the teachers, see the classrooms, and get their classrooms assignments.  Uniforms will be available for pick up in the cafeteria on this night.

*  Middle and high school students will be able to pick up their class schedules at this time in the gymnasium

**  High school students may need to select elective classes based on their first trimester schedule.

We look forward to welcoming each of you back to Merritt Academy for a great 2017-2018 school year!
