Congratulations to Steven Banister, kindergarten student at La Merced!!!! He won a bike for year-long perfect attendance!!!
Hello La Merced family. Last Friday, we were able to have our first school assembly at LME this year. One thing that was addressed is the upcoming field day. Starting May 2, if a student receives a referral slip to the office, they will loose the chance to participate in field day. We are hoping that this will help the students make better decisions and better choices. Please discuss this with your students. Thank you.
Hello La Merced Family. Don't forget that we have Friday and Monday off for Easter Holiday. Classes will resume on Tuesday the 19th. 6th Grade will begin state testing that day, so please get plenty of rest and make every effort to be at school on time. Have a great holiday.
