Message from the Principal:
Hello Rocklin Merryhill Families!!
October is looking to be a very busy month! We have LOTS of special activities planned for our students.
We are celebrating National book month the first week in October with the books of Anna Dewdney – Llama, Llama… Our students will participate in many activities that will engage them in our Links to Learning skill concept areas. This should be so much fun!
Our Halloween Carnival will be on Saturday, October 22. We’ll have lots of games and prizes! Of course, the ever popular Glow Room will be back, bigger and better than ever! We are trying something a little different this year and will be combining our carnival with Truck-or-Treat. Parent/grandparent volunteers will be needed for Trunk-or-Treat, so please let us know if you would like to help out.
As always, we appreciate your continued trust in Merryhill Rocklin to provide your children with the highest quality of care and education possible.

News From Our Education Department
For Parents and Teachers
“When you take the time to actually listen…to what people have to say, it’s amazing what you can learn. Especially if the people who are doing the talking also happen to be children.”
-Greg Mortenson – American Humanitarian
Nut Free: We are a NUT FREE school. We do have some students with nut allergies and appreciate your help in keeping all of our children safe and healthy.
California Licensing Regulations require that parents sign children in and out, with drop-off and pick-up times, and a complete, legible signature. We will be highlighting your sign-in/out sheets on those days when you forget to sign in or out!
Tuition Options: We appreciate that you make every effort to make your tuition payments on time. As you are aware, tuition payments are due on Monday of each week (or on your child’s first day of attendance). To save you time, the headache of having to remember your checkbook every Monday and to avoid those pesky late fees, consider enrolling in our automatic payment program at no charge. We also started accepting credit cards. Please talk to Sue or Aubrey for more information.
Product Recall Binder: As a courtesy to our families we have a Product Recall binder in the front office. We post recall notices for products that our children or their siblings might use. We hope you find this information helpful.
Art Files: Please remember to check them at least once a week to pick up any correspondence between the office and/or teachers, along with your child’s amazing art work.
Clothing and Nap Items: Remember to update your child’s extra clothing as the seasons change and your child grows! Please label all of their items so we can return anything that may be forgotten at the end of the day. Any soiled items will be placed in plastic bags and put into your child’s cubby. Each child needs a blanket and crib size sheet for rest time. Sheets and blankets must be taken home on Fridays (or you child’s last day of attendance during the week), laundered and returned on the first day of attendance.
LTL Files: Links to Learning files are available on the last day of each month. These files provide you with information about the skills your child will learning in the upcoming month, as well as a snapshot of what has been accomplished in the current month through the work you will find in the folder.
Merryhill Elementary School: If you are interested in having your child stay with Merryhill School for kindergarten and beyond, please visit our elementary campus at 1115 Orlando Ave. in Roseville, just off of I-80 and Riverside Ave. The school contact information is 916-783-3010 or email@example.com.
