Twice yearly during our fall and spring grant cycles, MERS administrators, teachers and staff have the opportunity to submit grant proposals for educational resources and professional enrichment courses that would not otherwise be possible through district funding. The Foundation for MERS strives to bring innovative programs and technology to our eight schools so that each school has the educational resources necessary for its students to reach their highest learning potential.
