If you are able to help out a Merritt Family in need this holiday season please stop in the office and grab an ornament to purchase. If you are not able to come into the office, then you can tell your child's teacher to send an ornament or two home in their folder. Thank you so much for your support! The last day to purchase gifts and get them to school is Monday, December 14th. Thank you so much to all the families that have participated in the Giving Tree so far this year!
