4. Dress Down Day Tomorrow, February 5th

The funds raised from this paid dress down day will go towards helping a Merritt Academy student raise funds for an awesome leadership opportunity.

** If your student is not participating by dressing down they need to be in their full uniform. If they choose to participate they can wear casual clothes by paying a minimum of $1.00.

5. Kaiser Group Pictures

Kaiser photography will be here on Thursday, February 6th to take pictures for the yearbook of our non-sports clubs and groups. Please make sure they have the appropriate school uniform on that or bring their special shirts that coordinate with the group (Example band, Homework Helpers, robotics, etc.)

6. Recess, Lunchroom, and Popcorn Volunteers Needed

Merritt Academy is in need of volunteers who would like to come up here at the K-5 Lunch/Recess times (11:00- 12:15) and help monitor students in the cafeteria and playground. We have teachers and other support staff that monitor these areas everyday, but some additional support is greatly needed.

Also, we are in need of parent volunteers that would like to help make popcorn and distribute on Friday mornings. We have had to cancel a few popcorn days recently due to lack of parent volunteers.

If you or you know anyone interested in helping out for any of this please let he school know by calling the main office or e mailing Mr. Seiferlein at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
