Christmas in the Park- “The Giving Grinch Tree”
This year Merryhill Milpitas (Corning and Yosemite campuses) have joined together to create a “Giving Tree” at San Jose’s annual event called “Christmas in the Park”.
We have a special ornament that families will get to decorate if they make a donation to help the homeless in Santa Clara County. The ornament will include their family name and it will be displayed on our Merryhill tree on Downtown San Jose. If you would like to donate to the homeless, we will have a display in the front lobby. You can make a check donation or cash donation, please see me asap. A special “Thank you” to the Noble Family, Chu Family, and Bui Family who donated so far.
Operation Christmas Child- UPDATE
An update on our progress for Operation Christmas Child 2016. Our students were able to put together 100 boxes in November for children who have never received a gift. The boxes shipped to the following countries: Philippines, Indonesia Ukraine, Aruba, and the Southeast Asian nation of Myanmar . Thank you so much for all of your donations. The students learned so much during this project. We will let you know of any media coverage that comes out.
Lifelong Learning Skills:
We have classroom packets with information on yours child’s classroom about curriculum, our book-a-night program, program overviews, and teacher information. Please let us know if you need another copy.
Classes are on Wednesdays, at 9:00 am during the school year. We will let you know as soon as the next session starts in 2017.
Parent Videos & Photos
If you are video-taping or taking pictures at our school they must be only of your child. Please do not post videos or pictures of other children as it is a violation of their privacy. If you have accidentally posted pictures or videos of other children, please remove them immediately. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
We have a nut-free policy at our school. Please keep all peanut items at home. We have children with severe allergies.
Medication and Sunscreen Policy Reminder
Just a friendly reminder that our medication policy states that we can only administer medicine that has been prescribed by a doctor. We cannot administer over the counter medication without a doctor’s note with explicit instructions on how to administer it.
Regarding sunscreen, if you would like your child’s teacher to apply sunscreen throughout the summer months, please complete the “Sunscreen Authorization Form” located in the front office. We ask that you bring your child in their own sunscreen and apply a coat of sunscreen before they come to school. All sunscreen will be applied after nap unless noted differently by a parent.
