Thanks for helping to make Mr. Merritt's birthday extra special. Our room parents extraordinaire brought in banana pudding from his favorite restaurant for the birthday boy to enjoy and 12 grapes for each student. It is a tradition in Spain and Latin America to eat 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight on New Year's day. Two very personal ways to honor the dedicated, amazing, inspiring Mr. Merritt! Also, Mrs. Weiss and Ms. Adams came to read him a birthday book.
