Mercer Elementary offers many extracurricular opportunities to students to empower them to explore a wide variety of interests and develop life skills. Several of these activities are financially supported by the PTA.
The Destination Imagination program is a fun, hands-on, team-based activity that fosters students’ creativity and curiosity through open-ended academic challenges in science, technology, engineering, math, fine arts and service learning. The program is supported by the Forest Hills Foundation for Education.
Several enrichment activities are financially supported by the PTA and change throughout the year. They range from Spanish, visual arts, STEM, dance and many more.
The Mercer Running Club has grown each year, with students in fourth through sixth-grade participating in 2016. Students, staff and parent volunteers meet after school between March through May to prepare to participate in the Forest Hills Foundation’s 5K in May.
Eagle Council meets once a month. All students interested in participating must apply and be accepted. Students serve as leaders within the building.
