WELCOME TO MERCY'S FUTURE ... NOW
As part of the celebration of our 60th anniversary beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, Mercy has undergone a transformation for our original classroom wing. The classroom renovation project is expected to go for a couple years altogether in two phases, and the goal is to modernize our school and our classrooms for years to come.
We are looking for donors to join with us in supporting our classroom renovation project. For more infomation, please contact Tom Harper at 610-797-8242 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
