Good Morning Parents!  Please read through all the information below as it contains information about important events and happenings at Merritt.

1.    State Representative Jeff Yaroch to Visit Merritt!

Merritt Academy is proud to have State Representative Jeff Yaroch visit our 10th grade government students on Friday, September 15, 2017 at 1 pm in the high school gym. Please join us as Rep. Yaroch discusses the importance of the government, the Constitution, and the role of a representative in the state government.  

2.  Powerschool Log-Ins  

Students should have brought home Parent Portal log-ins last week.  Please check with them to make sure they brought it home.  This will give you access to your child's grades 24 hours a day 7 days a week.  Please contact the main office if you didn't receive this information this week. 

3.  Merritt Academy Helping to Fight T1D 

We have a Merritt family that will be walking for JDRF for type 1diabetes. On September 17, 2017, the Hollers family will be walking in JDRF One Walk® to change the lives of people who have type 1 diabetes (T1D). 

With T1D, there are no breaks. Weston, a Merritt Academy student, has to test his blood sugar several times a day and pay close attention to what he eats. He worries about things like keeping a balance between blood sugar lows and highs. It can be really overwhelming. 

But the exciting research JDRF is funding gives them hope that they won't have to live with T1D forever!  A portion of the money raised from the first two dress down days will be donated to this great cause.  If you are willing to make a donation above and beyond what the school is doing please contact Mr. Seiferlein before Wednesday, September 13th. 

4.  Popcorn Fridays

Will start this Friday September 15th.  Popcorn can be purchased for .50 a bag.  Popcorn Fridays will run most Fridays through out the school year.  In the event that there will NOT be popcorn on a given week we will do our best to notify families via these e mail blasts.
