Where Mercy Girls Become Women of Mercy

Benefits of an All Girls School

Going to an all girls school is like eating a Sour Patch Kid. First it’s sour, then it’s sweet (but mostly sweet). At first, some girls may be shocked and upset when they fully realize that there are no boys at an all-girls school (Hint: It’s an all-girls school)….

Clubs at Mercy

Any high school experience would benefit by club participation and here at Mercy joining a club is as common as enrolling in an English class – but it’s a bit more fun. For Mercy girls –
especially freshmen – joining a club is a great way to make friends that…

Helping to Support Mercy

Fundraising is a big part of Mercy.  The main reason we do fundraising is to help each of us.  All of the fundraising we do during the food sale in the fall and the plant sale in the spring goes toward the negotiated tuition, which most families take advantage…

The Joys of Standardized Testing

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” Well, it’s that time of the year again for: standardized testing. Although sitting through 3 hours of testing is not my ideal morning, it is something that must be done. On the 15th of October, the freshmen and sophomores took the…

On Sunday, I attended the MOM’s Mass and Brunch. The event started with a beautiful Mass by Father Charles Kestermeier. The Mass was followed by a lovely brunch. There was an abundance of breakfast foods. Personally, I enjoyed a little bit of everything. At the end of the brunch,…

Life in the Theater

I truly had fun experiencing the fall play. Even though I was not in it, all of my friends were. I helped them practice their monologues for their auditions and memorize their lines. I went to the Sunday night show and it was amazing. The freshmen did a wonderful…

Help Along The Way

Each student at Mercy has an advisor. We meet with our advisors a couple times throughout the year. They are there to help us succeed academically and are always there to give advice when needed.  Sometime during the second half of first quarter each of us meets individually with…

We’ve Got Spirit Yes We Do…..

Mercy girls have spirit. When I came to Mercy I was astounded by the show of enthusiasm all of the girls had for their school. Everyone participated in spirit rally chants and went crazy on wacky spirit days where we all got to dress up in crazy blue and…

Mercy Day Experiences

Mercy Day used to never be in my vocabulary. I, along with many others I suppose, would’ve been completely confused if someone told us to have a happy Mercy Day. Now, though, after an entire year at Mercy, it means a lot more than a half day off or…
