Cultural Heritage Night Invites All to Participate, October 24th, 6-8:15pm
We invite everyone to come celebrate their family's cultural heritage with the Merion Community. Within each country, there are often-times more than one ethnic group, and therefore more than one culture. Participants can choose to represent their country, their ethnic group, or both. If you'd like to represent your country, or ethnic group, please contact us about reserving a table at Merion Cultural Heritage Night. Email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Cultural Heritage Night 2019 is set for Thursday, October 24th, 6-8:15pm. This event is free, but please bring a canned food donation for the Narberth Community Food Bank.

Important Reminders From the Office
Just a few reminders:
Merion Staff may not be physically present to supervise students who arrive to school prior to 8:40am. While we love the opportunity for the kids to get some exercise prior to school, we want to do our best to make sure they are appropriately supervised.
With the Fall and Winter arriving please label all of your children's belongings (i.e. lunch packs, backpacks, folders, coats and jackets with the first initial and last name). It makes it easier for the items to be returned to the proper child. For more tips and reminders click here.
We need you! Girls on the Run seeks coaches for 2020 season!
You can make an impact that lasts a lifetime by volunteering as a Girls on the Run coach! Our 10-week program starts March 2 and is held two days a week after school at Merion, helping girls in 3rd through 5th grades build confidence and other life skills through running games. Not a runner? No problem! Training and curriculum books will be provided. Read more here
