Mercy Day of Celebration
Thursday, May 23, 2019

Dear Mercy Parents,   

As we near the end of another wonderful school year, we have planned a special final day of celebration for our student body. The date is Thursday, May 23rd. On this day the schedule will include the Honors Convocation, the adviser group parties, and the closing Moving Up assembly.

We hope that this day is a fitting end for students of every grade level, with special focus on our graduating Class of 2019. Our expectation is that all students will be present for the entire day. Please do not make appointments or arrangements for your daughter to either arrive late in the day or to leave early. Students who wish to participate in adviser parties and Moving Up also need to be in attendance at the Honors Convocation. Normal daily attendance procedures will be followed.

Please see important message about Moving Up procedures as well as a detailed schedule for the day listed below.
 
As always, we deeply appreciate your support and look forward to a memorable day of celebration!

Thank you,
Mercy High School Administration
MOVING UP 

Moving Up is treasured event and we all want the students' experience to come first. To make sure it goes smoothly, we ask guests to follow guidelines as described for the safety of students, orderly closing of the school day, and enjoyment of all.

If you intend to join us next week, we kindly ask that you observe the following guidelines:
  • Seats will be clearly marked as reserved for students and staff and no one may venture into those areas.
  • No preferred seating arrangements can be made for the elderly, children, etc... since space is limited. This event is not suited for any visitor who cannot stand comfortably for forty minutes.
     
  • No parking will be allowed in unlined spaces in the lot. Curbside access and egress is needed for buses. Security will direct vehicles away from our bus lanes.
     
  • Please do not roam the aisles to take photographs during the ceremony. We truly need everyone to practice restraint so as not to hinder the students as they physically "move up" to their new sections of the auditorium.
     
  • If you stay between Honors and Moving Up, please do not wander to other areas of the building.
These requests are made to assist us with giving priority to the students. Moving up is a special occasion that warrants a special request for cooperation. We look forward to a memorable day of celebration. Thanks for your continued support for Mercy High School.
