New Principal

Dear Friends of Mercy,

I hope you had a restful and wonderful Easter break! I'm delighted to announce that Mrs. Patricia Sattler, Dean of Students at Gabriel Richard Catholic High School in Riverview, will be the next Principal of Mercy High School beginning July 1, 2017. Mrs. Sattler has served as a team chair for the AdvancED accreditation process, has elementary through high school experience, and expertise in instructional improvement and technology. She is a dedicated Catholic, family member, lifetime learner, and Catholic educator who embraces the Mercy charism.

Program on Personal Safety

Dear Freshwomen Parents:

Since 2007, the United States Council of Catholic Bishops has required all high schools to present an educational program on personal safety to all of its 9th and 10th grade students. The program selected by the Archdiocese of Detroit for the 9th grade is "Called to Protect." The 9th grade program teaches teens how to recognize personal boundaries (physical, emotional, behavioral) and also how to respond if someone attempts to violate any of those boundaries.

BBFA Program

Dear Mercy Parents/Guardians:

Please see information below about a free community parent program offered by the BBFA (Building Better Families through Action). BBFA is a non-profit community organization that promotes healthy families by actively educating, informing and providing tools to parents and the community about healthy parenting as well as the prevention of substance abuse and other destructive behaviors.
