Principal's Message

Dear West Mercer Families,

Happy May Day! I may be dating myself but I remember the 1st of May as a day to pick flowers, put them in a little cone and leave them at your neighbors front door as a positive gesture for the beginning of spring. I hope the sweet little ritual of my youth is something that you too remember fondly. Consider this a small May Day gift from me to you

May greetings
