Graduation 2016

 Welcome to the Graduating Class of 2016

It is with great pleasure to inform you about Father Mercrdi Graduation 2016. We have had to make revisions due to the time constraint and limitations of our school and community due to the wild fire.

We have attached a link to a google form for you to indicate if you are able to attend. Right now every student in attendance will receive 5 tickets to invite members of their family to this wonderful event.
