Celebration Day - Friday June 5th
2015 represents the sixth consecutive year that our PTO has sponsored Celebration Day. This school-wide event gives all of our students and staff an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the 2014-15 school year. The day’s events feature lots of outdoor activities including races, relays, grade level competitions and more to promote team building, cooperation, acceptance, courage, gratitude, kindness, respect, trustworthiness and citizenship. Each grade level is assigned a specific colored Celebration Day T-shirt and all students are expected to wear their special T-shirt on Celebration Day. (Rain date is Monday, June 8th)
Application period is February 2 through April 30, 2015. Wisconsin’s inter-district public school open enrollment program allows parents/guardians to apply for their children to attend school districts other than the one in which they live. State residents in 4-year old kindergarten to grade 12 may apply to participate in open enrollment. More information about Merton and links to fill out an application can be found here. Applications must be completed online and received by the nonresident school district no later than 4:00 pm on Thursday, April 30, 2015.

2015-2016 Kindergarten Enrollment Underway
If you missed our recent Parent Information Night...
The Merton Community School District is in the planning process for next year’s Early Childhood and Kindergarten classes. We are gathering information on children who will be NEW enrollees in the 2015-16 school year for 4K, 5K or Early Childhood. If you plan to enroll your child at Merton Primary next year for one of the above-mentioned programs please notify Melissa Smith in the Primary Office at 538-2227, at your earliest convenience. We would like to include your family on our mailing list for new enrollees. A letter of invitation will then be sent out in early 2015 for you to attend our annual Parent Information Night which will be held in late January.
If you have a neighbor who is new to our district, or know of a family who is planning to enroll at Merton next year, please share this information with them. (If your child is currently enrolled here at Merton you do not need to respond to this request. We are looking for information on NEW enrollees at this time.) Questions about enrollment for next year, please contact the Primary office at the number listed above.
This includes (but is not limited to):
- 2015 4K new enrollees
- 2015 5K new enrollees
- Families interested in open enrolling in Merton’s 4K or 5K programs
QUESTIONS?? Call the Primary School Office at: (262) 538-2227
