Welcome to the new school year of 2016/2017. We have started off nicely with our new students. In the first few weeks of this month we are getting to know each other, and the children are getting adjusted to the new environment. We have had amazing learning themes and more coming up with many hands on learning activities.
For our new families this is new information, but for our returning students it is a reminder that we will not have homework assignments over the summer. We still have academics throughout the summer months because we do not want the children to forget what they learned over the school year. We will continue the homework assignments starting August 15, 2016. If you would like to know what your child is learning throughout the week please take a look at the Curriculum Sheet on the parent board in the classroom. This will tell you all of the subjects and skills the children will learn in that week. You can also review the teacher’s lesson plan on the parent board to see the learning activities the teachers have planned to incorporate the subjects and skills. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us.
Please drive slowly and carefully in the parking lot. No one should be on their phones or texting while driving because children are quick to run in the parking lot. Also, do not park on the curbs in the parking lot. Please park in a designated parking space. When parents park on the curb it does not give enough room for others to drive by safely.
Please remember to sign in and out every day in the classroom binder! This is extremely important because we use this binder in case of an emergency!
Please put your child’s name on all sippy cups and water bottles. We do not want the children drinking from other children’s cups!
Please make sure you fill out a sunscreen form in the office before dropping off the sunscreen with the teachers. The children are not allowed to keep sunscreen in their cubby or back pack. This is the same for any lotions and medication. Please make sure all medications get checked into the preschool office. Medication and lotions need to be kept out of reach of children at all times. One last reminder, please put your sheet and blanket for nap time in a bag labeled with your child’s name. If it is not in a bag and does not have a name on it, then we do not know who it belongs to 🙂 Thank you for your cooperation!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns my door is always open. We are here to help you and “our” children in any way we can. Everyone at Merryhill is special and important to us. Let us make this a great school year!

Parent Referral Program:
If there’s one thing parents love to do, it’s talk about their children’s successes.
When friends ask you about your child’s experiences at Merryhill School, what type of success stories do you share? Do you mention the personal and educational discoveries your child is making thanks to our advanced curriculum? Do you talk about the new levels of self and social confidence your child has gained thanks to our encouraging atmosphere?
*For every new child you refer who enrolls at our school for three months, you’ll receive one FREE week of tuition for your child*.
It’s our way of saying thanks for doing what comes naturally – singing the praises of your child and sharing your experiences with the Merryhill School difference!!
