Where Mercy Girls Become Women of Mercy

Pizza with Pop

While some people were watching the Oscars, Mercy girls and their dads came together for Pizza with Pop, the annual father-daughter dance. After everyone got their picture taken, we all gathered to say grace and get our food – pizza, of course. Once we were done eating, we could…

BTCMR Swimming

This year I swam on the Mercy swim team.  It is a co-ed team made up of four high schools: Mercy, Brownell-Talbot, Roncalli, and Concordia.  I really enjoyed this swim season and I will be coming back for next year as well.  We had many meets and my teammates…

On the Court

School Uniforms

Here at Mercy, we wear uniforms. That means, by definition of the word uniform, that we all wear the same clothes. For the most part, we do. On any given day, I can pick out plenty of girls wearing the same sweater-shirt combo as I’m wearing. Within the uniform…

Part Time Work

Once you turn sixteen, all you want to do is go out and enjoy your freedom. If your parents are like mine, then everything you do has to be paid for on your own including the gas to get around. What am I supposed to do? A job is…
