Day of Discovery Features Learning Opportunities
Mercy High School has many traditions, from Mercy Day to May Crowning. One of its newest traditions is Day of Discovery, which began about 20 years ago. On October 15, the day designed by Student Council and made possible by faculty, features activities and trips that leverage opportunities for students to learn outside the traditional classroom setting.
The list of activities ranges from and includes experiences such as exploring the culinary treasures of the Old Market, traveling to Oklahoma City to experience the memorial dedicated to the lives lost in the domestic terrorist bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in 1995, visiting local farming and cheese operations, discovering Fontanelle Forest, and meeting with artists and theatre professionals.
Day of Discovery is not merely recreational; all trips have a clear learning objective. That being said, all offered experiences are fun, too!
