The elementary students had a fantastic time viewing the solar eclipse yesterday. They were all so excited and amazed by the experience. It was a great opportunity for them to learn about the science behind it all too. #WeAreMerrill #VandalPride

Yesterday, our 4th grade students had a presentation on dairy cows through the Adopt-a-Cow program. The students learned how the cows are taken care of, what they eat, and they adopted a cow named, Nyla. They will be getting updated each month on Nyla's growth and incorporating it into their lessons. #VandalPride #WeAreMerrill
