Welcome to the Home & School Association!

The Home & School Association welcomes you to an exciting new year. The committee is responsible for creating, organizing, and participating in many events and fundraisers. These events bring parents, families, friends, and students together to raise money, awareness, and support for the school. By joining, you will meet other parents, promote relationships for you and your daughters, improve the school, and embrace the Mercy mission and vision.

The committee meets once a month to discuss upcoming events and to brainstorm new and fun ways to support our school. We rely on your time and resources to make every event special and meaningful for your daughter. We know your time is precious and work/life balance can be hectic, but please make time to find the event that works for you! We are grateful for any time that you can give.

Officers for the 20120/2021 School Year are still being determined. If you are interested, please contact Tina Strell at (860) 346-6659 x411
