5. Kaiser Group Pictures
Kaiser photography will be here on Thursday, February 6th to take pictures for the yearbook of our non-sports clubs and groups. Please make sure they have the appropriate school uniform on that or bring their special shirts that coordinate with the group (Example band, Homework Helpers, robotics, etc.)
6. Recess, Lunchroom, and Popcorn Volunteers Needed
Merritt Academy is in need of volunteers who would like to come up here at the K-5 Lunch/Recess times (11:00- 12:15) and help monitor students in the cafeteria and playground. We have teachers and other support staff that monitor these areas everyday, but some additional support is greatly needed.
Also, we are in need of parent volunteers that would like to help make popcorn and distribute on Friday mornings. We have had to cancel a few popcorn days recently due to lack of parent volunteers.
