Superintendent's Message

Winter/Spring 2014

Superintendent Gary Plano The Mercer Island School Board and I extend our deep appreciation to the entire Mercer Island community for showing such incredible support for the bond and levy with more than 74% and 76% respectively voting YES. Our teachers, administrators and support staff are thankful to members of this community for showing confidence in us and in our ability to provide a high-quality, public school education to all of our students.
In March, the Mercer Island School District (MISD) and City of Mercer Island will cosponsor three public events that will give the community an opportunity to provide input and get more information on the three construction projects approved by voters.

I am excited to be sharing our near-finished concept designs with the community so they have an opportunity to provide input and have questions answered by staff from the district, city and our architects. We’ll host one daytime event and two evening events to give as many people as possible the opportunity to attend. The dates and locations are as follows:

Thursday, March 6
1:00 – 2:30 p.m.
PEAK, Multipurpose Room
4120 86th Avenue SE

Monday, March 10
7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
