We are trying something new for our families and community members to view our basketball games and other activities from the comfort of home, or on their devices. Home basketball games can be viewed on the new platform called HUDL. You can go to the following web link and bookmark it to view home games live. https://www.team1sports.com/highschool/mn/?S=mcgregormercuries We are planning on using HUDL tonight for the Boys' Basketball game vs South Ridge. The broadcast will only be for the Varsity game and will go live at 6:50 p.m. This is free for families to use to view activities.
Don’t forget the Elementary concert is tomorrow, Wednesday, December 21st! There will be a dress rehearsal at 9:30 AM and the actual performance will be at 1:30 PM. Kindergartners should wear nice clothes. 1st-2nd ￼graders should wear black pants or leggings and will be dressed as snowmen, so they should bring a bright scarf and maybe mittens, or a stocking cap. 3rd-6th graders will wear red on top.
There have been questions as to if we will make up a snow day next Friday, December 23rd as it's marked on the school calendar. Because it is late notice we will not use Friday as a make-up day. Next week we will finish the week on Thursday as originally planned. Thank you and enjoy the holiday break!
The Tree Lighting Program at the golf course has been cancelled tomorrow.
There is a wonderful family event happening at the Golf Course on December 17th. Hope you are able to stop by and participate in this. Another great way to support our local businesses and the school

Here is the audio link for the Special Board session on Monday, September 12th. Sorry about the sound quality, we still had to meet in the auditorium, which is not the best for sound. https://5il.co/1hveo
The location of tonight's school board meeting has been moved back to the HS Auditorium. We just don't have the Library ready yet for meetings. An audio of the meeting will still happen for the public to listen to at a later time.

As luck would have it, I found the other 1st grade class out on a break and they agreed to take a picture with me. This is Ms. Pohl's classroom. Another class full of scholars. GO MERCS!
Look at this great group of scholars! I was lucky to find them in the hallway and got to take my picture with them. This is Ms. Kennedy's 1st grade class. GO MERCS!
It must be my lucky day. I was checking the hallways this afternoon and I came across the other kindergarten class. They agreed to let me take a picture with them. Here is Mrs. Klund's future leaders.
I was lucky enough today to get my picture with Mrs. Hendrickson's kindergarten class. Aren't they a great looking group of future leaders?
