Merced is dedicated to enriching the lives of our Panthers in a variety of ways, including programs special to Merced! We feature structured recess options, dance, and coding! Our Panther are well-rounded and ready for success!
CF Fitness Structured Recess
All Merced students benefit from the teaching of physical movement through games by our CF Fitness Coach Ashley! They receive physical education that is developmentally appropriate, heart-pumping, and engaging!
TK, K, 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders receive dance lessons from our amazing teacher, Mrs. Parra! The students are actively dancing, learning new skills and having fun! They perform during our yard assemblies throughout the year!
3rd, 4th and 5th grade Coding Class
Our 4th and 5th grade students enjoy their weekly Coding Class. They will learn how to create their own games and animations in Scratch, a powerful visual programming language and learning environment developed by MIT. They will employ basic, intermediate and advanced programming concepts as they complete increasingly complex projects. They will learn to think like a programmer and solve problems with code.
