Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Mercerville Elementary School!

    Home of the Mountain Lions  

     Thank you for visiting Mercerville Elementary School and welcome!  I am honored to serve as principal of such a warm and special school community.  Working alongside such a knowledgeable and professional staff, a caring group of parents and talented students is a true privilege.   

    We recognize that each child is an individual and each brings unique talents to our community; that’s what makes it so special.  At Mercerville, children come first!    

    Schools are in the business of learning and we strive to build our students’ critical thinking and literacy skills.  To succeed in the 21st century, our students will need to be able to communicate effectively, problem solve, and have strong interpersonal skills.  Mercerville builds this foundation in our students by offering rigorous and engaging academic programs in the areas of reading, writing, math, science and social studies.  Additionally, students are exposed to a variety of arts and specialized skills with instruction in the areas of music (choral – all grades, instrumental and strings for grades 3, 4 & 5), art, American Sign language, media, and physical education. 

    Recognizing our responsibility to build civic responsibility, we teach the “whole child” and have a strong character education program, designed around the tenets of good character, and aimed to promote strong self-esteem, respect, and positive peer interaction.  Through weekly instruction, as well as ongoing programs, assemblies, and celebrations, we promote a happy, respectful community.   Students and staff show their Mercerville pride through participation in spirit days, food and clothing drives and various PTA events.  Mercerville is a giving community, always eager to lend a helping hand.

    We are fortunate to have the support of an active and child-centered PTA.  This organization does an outstanding job supporting our students and staff.  We appreciate their volunteer efforts throughout our school.  I urge you to join and support the Mercerville Elementary School PTA in whatever manner your schedule allows.  It makes a difference for our children. 

    There is much to celebrate at Mercerville and we are proud to be rewarded, daily, by the smiles on our students’ faces!
