Mercy tradition is to be awarded a day off school for each team State Championship win. Thanks to our Varsity Golf champions, there will be no school on Monday, November 28


We reached our $100,000 goal and we will now have Friday, May 12th off from school. In order to hit our $150,000 goal, it means we need everyone to sell about 2.5 more books above and beyond their minimum requirement. 


All students who bring in $5 tomorrow will be eligible to dress in their favorite University of Michigan or Michigan spirit wear in celebration of the big game this weekend.  All proceeds will go to the Maroon & Gold Raffle.


Anyone who has sold above and beyond their 35 tickets, 30 for sisters, will be eligible to win one of the five $150 cash prize drawings tomorrow! Get those tickets in and keep up the great work.


The raffle closes on October 28, 2022 with a goal of $175,000 and the drawing will be held on November 4, 2022. In lieu of purchasing tickets, you may also make a tax deductible donation online at mhsmi.org/giving/maroon-and-gold-donationThank you to all families who have been busy selling Maroon & Gold Raffle tickets to support Mercy!

  1. Choose the size ad you would like to create.
  2. Select student when prompted for whom to buy the ad.
