Farmington Hills Mercy's Julia Bishop, a future Spartan, named Michigan's Miss Volleyball
By Tom Lang
Special to Detroit Free Press

Julia Bishop is Miss Volleyball for 2020 — but if she had her way, she’d change the title to "Miss Team Volleyball."

Please be advised due to the current state mandate and remote only learning schedule, we find it necessary to postpone the Focus: HOPE Food Drive. Campus Ministry is working to coordinate with Focus: HOPE for a later date. Please do not drop off donations to Mercy at this time. You may hold onto any items purchased or donate to another food pantry. Stay tuned for further information. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding!

Quiz Bowl participated in two national tournaments. On November 14, Mercy competed in their first-ever National Literature Challenge. The team of Caitlyn Begosa '22, Caitlin Condon '23, Carly Madden '22, Caroline Turco '23 finished in 6th place nationally!

Congratulations to Ciara McCliment ‘21 on her THIRD consecutive 1st Place in the MHSAA D1 Region 2 Diving Regionals!

This evening Governor Whitmer announced a new order from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services that tightens resident restrictions in an effort to control the current COVID-19 surge. One of the restrictions is for all high schools throughout the state to return to a remote learning model for the next 3 weeks. There will temporarily be no in-person instruction.

As we enter into this season of thanks, one of the ways that Mercy High School expresses gratitude is by giving back to the community. For decades we have been an important partner to Focus: HOPE in their efforts to serve the poor and the elderly in the Metro Detroit area. In previous years, we have filled at least half of a semi-tractor-trailer with food collected by our students! Focus: HOPE provides assistance to roughly 41,000 low income seniors every year through monthly food assistance, health screenings and so much more. 

Thank you for supporting Mercy High School! We are truly blessed by the generosity of so many who share our vision to educate and inspire women of diverse backgrounds to lead and serve with compassion. We could not do this important work without the charitable gifts from faithful supporters like you.

Mercy’s E-LEARNING Schedule for the 2020-21 school year was revised and approved by Curriculum Council on Wednesday, November 4. This schedule was created in consideration of enhanced online teaching and delivery skills, learned tools and the increased comfort level with E-LEARNING that our teachers have developed since last spring.

Our students also have become better acclimated to learning remotely through a full day schedule given our current synchronous hybrid model. Furthermore, more curriculum content can be supported with a full four-day instructional week.
