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!
