School Mall Link.jpg

Please support one of Merlinda's fundraising efforts by shopping at SchoolMall. Remember that our school earns money every time you purchase items which  includes any online shopping done at over 400 merchants, including many local businesses.

Thank you, Merlinda families, for your support!  

These additional funds allow us to purchase additional AR books, supplies and incentives for students.


This year one of the ongoing fundraisers we are participating in is called Shoparoo.  All you need to do is take pictures of your grocery receipts with the Shoparoo app made for your smartphone.  It doesn’t matter where you shop or what you buy - every receipt submitted results in a donation to our school!

Simply download the free app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store by searching ‘shoparoo’ and then select our school as your chosen cause.  Click here to start.



Merlinda students are respectful, responsible and safe...always ready to learn.

COWs spotted at Merlinda Elementary School!!!

Merlinda students are hard at work testing the new state test (CAASPP).  In order to support the technology end of this new system, West Covina Unfied School District has purchased Chromebooks for various school sites.  The Chromebooks are transported from class to class via carts called COWs (computers on wheels).

Keep up the great work Mustangs!
