Merced School

Get Involved

We know that when parents get involved with their children’s education, great things happen. Your involvement can have a tremendous impact in a child’s life as you provide that extra attention that can help with reading skills or a math problem. Everyone has something to offer a child, and to that end, we have instituted volunteer programs that have proven to be successful.

We have provided a link to the volunteer survey form at the side of this page. We need tutors, classroom helpers, event helpers, and even helpers from home. Volunteering in our school has contributed to our students doing well in their studies and activities. We appreciate everything you can do!

Family Reading Night

Once a week in our beautiful library, we encourage as many parents as possible to bring their child and let him/her read to you. Your child will love to demonstrate his/her reading comprehension and computer skills by taking a short Accelerated Reader (AR) test in the computer lab afterwards. It’s a great way to spend some quality time with your child, uninterrupted by outside distractions. Check the calendar for the scheduled meeting times. We hope to see you there!

PTA Information

The Parent/Teacher Association (PTA) is separate from the other volunteer programs and requests a small monetary donation in order to become a member. The scope of the program is also much broader and can encompass needs and activities beyond the classroom.

Merced encourages you to consider a PTA membership. Although it is not necessary to be a PTA member in order to be a parent volunteer or to participate in all Merced School activities, the PTA supports our schools and school district in several ways. On the national level, the PTA often supports initiatives that have a positive effect on the safety and personal growth of our students. On the district level, PTA celebrates deserving individuals who support the school as well as recognizes a few high school seniors by providing college scholarships. We encourage you to give an annual eight dollar membership donation, which supports our PTA organization.
