PHONE - A - THON A SUCCESS
Thank you for your kindness and your
patience when our seniors called you during
our phone-a-thon in December. We are so
happy to have talked with you and we hope
you are proud to be a Mercy alumni/ae. If
you didn’t receive a phone call, we don’t
have your updated information. Please help
us by going to www.mercycatholic.org/
The seniors who called you are part of a new
class called Senior Project. The purpose of
the class is to give students an opportunity to
explore and learn about a prospective
college major or another area of interest not
currently covered by the curriculum at Our
Lady of Mercy Catholic High School. The
students meet with a professional mentor for
a minimum of 10 hours outside of class.
They have to create a product/project, keep
a portfolio and then present their project in
front of a panel of judges.
How can you be involved? You can be a
judge in either December or May. Last
semester Kelly Tolcher (‘08), Robyn Keuler
Dunn (‘05), Ryan and Brittany Schilling
(‘05) were some of our judges. Or, if you
are interested in being a mentor for some of
our seniors, please contact Mrs. LaunayFallasse.
Please stay in touch and send us any exciting
information about what you are doing so we
can highlight you in future newsletters.

Only 800 car raffle tickets
remain. Purchase your
tickets for a chance to win
a brand new 2014 Lexus.
