Spread the Word - this year Merchantville's 8th Grade presents a safe Halloween experience for all little and big monsters in Monsterville - a Haunted Circus Train float parade! The parade will begin on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. - map & parade route. The MES Haunted House has been a community staple since the 1990's and is usually the biggest graduation fundraiser of the year for MES 8th Graders. Please consider supporting them with a donation through Venmo: @Merchantville-EighthGrade or with cash donations at end of parade. Thank you! Please also "like" our new page, Merchantville 8th Grade for more information on ALL 8th Grade events and fundraisers this year! We know this isn't the year they envisioned, but we know with this community's support it will be awesome, nonetheless! Huge thanks to the Merchantville Police Department, Merchantville Fire Department & Niagra Fire Company, Pennsauken Police Department, Merchantville Public Events Committee, Mayor Ted Brennan and even New Jersey Transit for their help in making sure our parade route is safe for all! It takes a village, and (we're biased here) we're so thankful to be a part of the BEST village (or borough!) around! 

Hello, Merchantville parents! We already know you’re doing superhero jobs with ALL of the school changes and at-home learning. if you have a little more to give - and we realize that may be asking a lot right now - the PTA's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee is wondering if you might consider sharing a bit of your smarts, and time, with another MES kiddo. In the hope of promoting educational equity, The PTA’s DEI is creating a pool of volunteer parent tutors who are willing to spend a little 1:1 time with a MES student who might need tutoring or even just a little homework help this fall. We hope to pair up students with parents who are knowledgeable in a variety of subject areas for free virtual tutoring sessions. Sessions will be scheduled according to student and tutor flexibility. If you can support one of our awesome MES kiddos as a parent tutor this fall, please click this link to register. Email This email address is being protected from spambots.

On June 4th, Merchantville School's Chief Administrator, Scott Strong, published a letter to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and express the district's unequivocal commitment to empowering students with the skills and voice to make a change and stand up for what they believe is right. MES provides an environment promoting “No Place For Hate” where people are not only tolerant, but accepting of diversity. Students and teachers stand #uKNIGHTed in making the world a better place.

The Merchantville Knights are well on their way to the championships. Coach Andrew Korn, Jerry Bennett, and Regina Lovelidge led the girls to the amazing win against the Brooklawn Bears. In the first quarter the Knights were up by 6 or 8. As the game progressed, the other team had catches up. It was now a pretty close game and everyone was playing like a team. The Lady Knights soon had the attitude that they were going to win, and they did! The final score of the game was 33-26 Knights. The other team had many great players. They fought hard against the Lady Knights, but the Knights were too powerful. All of the players did an amazing job, but a couple of standouts were eighth graders Sami Askari and Azariah Ivory - who was all over the boards and shooting great shots. Equally phenomenal was Bryce Westervelt who dribbled up the court with so much confidence it made everyone stare in awe. The Lady Knights will be facing the Somerdale Cavilers in the championships this Saturday. They are excited and can’t wait for the next match!
