Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!! This year is certain to be filled with milestones and experiences for all of the children in the school.  Last week most of the children moved into their new classroom and we are proud to say that it was a very smooth and successful transition.  We would like to welcome all the new families that have joined our Merryhill Calvine Preschool Family, we look forward to sharing wonderful memories with you.

This summer we will be dedicating it to STEM.  We will be implementing activities in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.  The school monthly calendar (which can be found in the front lobby) will provide you with a sequence of activities that will be implemented throughout the summer.  Also, we invite to look at the weekly lesson plans and the ” What We Learned Today” for updates of the learning process.  This month we will be visited by our sister elementary school, as they do demonstrations in both Engineering and Science.

We will be having our BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT on July 22nd from 6:15 pm to 7:00 pm.  “Pop” in and join us as you will learn about an overview of the Links to Learning program, general information to the classroom environment, and meet other Merryhill Parents.

We are excited to bring back our summer special on site activities.  Each week we will be offering a special activity that your child will have the opportunity to participate in.  Each class is $25.00 for the week, below is a list of all the classes.  Reminder space is very limited in each class:
