From the Head of School
Strengthening Our Gift of Community through Communication

As Christmas approaches and I reflect upon all the gifts we are given, I am reminded of the gift of this Mercy community.

Communication is critical for any community and we are always looking for ways to improve the quality of our communication with our families. After talking to many of our parents and hearing from some of our faculty and staff, we have decided to launch this parent newsletter, Parent Connect. It will be sent out from my office on Wednesdays every other week through the school year and will feature parent-specific information.
