WELCOME TO MERCY'S FUTURE ... NOW

As part of the celebration of our 60th anniversary beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, Mercy has undergone a transformation for our original classroom wing. The classroom renovation project is expected to go for a couple years altogether in two phases, and the goal is to modernize our school and our classrooms for years to come. Stay tuned for more information - and more pictures of what Mercy is looking like now (hint: it looks a lot like this drawing) ....
