Mercer County Schools’ Annual ReadiFest-The district Family Resource Centers and Youth Services Centers sponsor an annual back-to-school ReadiFest at Mercer County Senior High School for all district families. This event is held before individual schools’ open houses and features local community agencies providing free information and services to Mercer Co. students. This event is targeted to help prepare families for a successful school year by offering FREE physicals, eye screenings, school supplies, haircuts, dental screenings and other health information needed to start a child in school. These services are provided in one location for easy access and convenience.
Traveling Trophy- this is an attendance incentive program that recognizes the class with the best attendance each week. The winning class keeps the attendance trophy for a week and it will travel to the next class that wins. The class that has the most “wins” at the end of the school year will receive an additional reward for their attendance efforts.
Clothing Closet-The FRC provides clothing items to students when an “emergency” arises during the school day. This prevents the need to call home or to check out of school.
Back to School Night-The FRC, along with Title I program, provided a back to school night for families and students to help orient them to their new school environment. This was held prior to the start of the new school year.
Attendance-The FRC purchased flyers explaining the importance of daily attendance to students and parents. These flyers will be sent home with report cards.
