Merced is a National Blue Ribbon School
Welcome to Merced Elementary School! Merced is a National Blue Ribbon School, a California Distinguished School, a Title I Achievement School, and a California Business Honor Roll School for Excellence in Education. Merced’s Math & ELA AYP is the highest in the school district for a K-5 public school. AYP stands for Annual Yearly Progress and represents the percentage of students who scored advanced or proficient on the state test. Our AYP in Math is 85 % and 78 % for ELA. Merced’s overall API is the highest in the district of the non-charter public schools with a score of 914 points. API stands for Annual Performance Index and refers to a school’s overall score in both Math and English Language Arts. Merced’s success is based on a synergy where staff, student, and community come together to create an effective learning environment of Merced scholars. We are glad you’re here.
2013 Career Day
We want to thank all of the wonderful participants of our Annual Career Day. They shared their many skills and enriched the scholars at Merced. We had a great representation of law enforcement; SWAT officer, our own West Covina motorcycle police and K-9 patrol officer, LAPD officer, along with mounted patrol from El Monte PD., and this year we had a 911 dispatcher that taught our scholars important information about reporting emergencies. On the medical side, we had a nurse, clinical lab scientist and a surgical technician. KCAL 9 joined us this year along with CBS news reporter, Suraya Fadel. On the athletic side we had David Palmer, former Houston Astros baseball player, West Covina High's football and wrestling coach, MMA athlete and coach, along with an athletic director. We had a deaf/hard of hearing teacher who taught the students some sign language. Joining us again was a Cake Mamas' pastry chef. We had an Exxon/Mobil employee who shared about gasoline transportation along with a Zumba instructor who got the scholars charged up through exercise. We even had a drummer who gave scholars a mini-lesson in drumming. We had a graphic designer along with community professions; a construction worker and a mail carrier.
There was such a variety of careers represented that it really helped our students to see some of the possibilities that are out there. If they stay focused and embrace their education, they can be anything they want to be!

Mt. SAC Youth Days
The first day of spring break was an amazing one for the Merced Track and Field Team! The Mt.

It was wonderful to watch our panthers as they gave their very best and worked together as a team.
