1. Front Page of Sunday's Macomb Daily is Attached! In case you didn't see itJ

Good Afternoon Parents!

I am a proud principal as I sit here on this Monday afternoon.  On the front page of Sunday mornings edition of The Macomb Daily they listed the top scores in Macomb county from last Springs M Step.  I'm elated to notify all of you that Merritt Academy was #1 in every category: ELA, Math, and Social Studies. That's ranking us against every school district in Macomb County no matter public or charter!  

It just goes to show you when you have the right staff in place all working toward one common goal, students willing to learn, and parents doing their part you can accomplish anything!  I have attached a picture of the graph that was in the paper for your viewing pleasure.  

Sincerely,

Mr. Seiferlein
