Tigerfest

Proceeds from this annual, parent-run silent and live auction and dinner are used to fund our current programs and activities, which directly support our students. In addition, 10 percent of all proceeds support Mercy outreach projects. The event is typically held in late March or April. Ways to support our Tigerfest Auction are:

Sponsorships and Ads


Sponsorships and ads are donations with benefits! Sponsorships can include exposure on the Tigerfest website, signage, bidding devices and more—even tickets to the event --depending on the level of sponsorship. Sponsorships start at $850. Advertising enables you to communicate your message in the Tigerfest Auction Book. Ads start at only $125 ($100 for family ads!). Sponsorships and Ads can be completed online or by returning the Sponsorship/Ad form.

Spin & Win Casino Night

This fall event benefits our STEAM program! 

 

A Waldron Mercy education is more than just memorizing facts--it is about critical thinking, problem solving and working in teams to tackle the local and global challenges of the future. This includes making sure our technology program is at the forefront of what is available. Technology in the classroom enriches the learning experience for each Waldron Mercy Academy student. 

Because of past support of this event, Waldron Mercy boasts a 1:1 ratio of Chromebooks for students in grades three through eight and a 1:1 ratio of iPads in grades one and two. All of our wireless access points have been updated and all SMART Boards on the 1st and 2nd floors have been replaced with the latest model boards. STEM projects are integrated into our curriculum across multiple subject areas beginning in 1st grade. These assets are essential tools our students utilize to engage in challenging programming, engineering and robotics projects.

In addition to upgrading equipment, proceeds from this event also funds teacher training and professional development. Technology is constantly changing and our equipment and our teachers’ skills evolve with it every step of the way.
