AR DJ Party a Huge Success

Congratulations to Merlinda students who qualified for the AR DJ Dance Celebration by meeting grade level end-of-year AR goals!  The students had a blast getting their picture taken photo booth style, getting glow in the dark bracelets and dancing their hearts out at the DJ Party!  A huge "Thank You" to our parent volunteers for helping to make this a success.

Pennies for Patients

The Merlinda community raised $5,041.00 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Pennies for Patients campaign!  Mrs. Zelaya, Merlinda 1st grade teacher, was recognized as Outstanding Coordinator at a recent luncheon for surpassing the original fundraising goal of $800.  Way to go Mrs. Zelaya and Merlinda Mustangs!
