Dear Merryhill families,
The countdown to the Holidays begins!
Things will be getting busier and busier as the holidays approach. Please remember to read the notes we send home, check the news board in front of the preschool door, and check our website to mark important dates on your calendars. Our annual “Giving” event that we will host again this year is the Toys for Tots toy drive. This event kicked off last week!! Please bring in a new toy for “a child in need” and your child will receive their name on a star for our Holiday Tree. The due date for the unwrapped toys is this Friday, December 9th! We will have the US Marines come out on Monday to say hello to the children and take our Toys for Tots off to “the children in need” for the Holidays! I look forward to filling our Holiday tree with lots of stars.
Our Holiday Show is next week already! We have so many wonderful children here at Merryhill School that we need to separate the age groups to different days of the week. We normally do all of our events outside to fit all of our lovely families, but with the winter’s cold weather we are forced inside. With that said, Tuesday, December 13th will be our Beginner Room Show. It will be located in the Yellow Room at 3:30 pm. Wednesday, December 14th is the Intermediate show at 3:30 in the Yellow Room. Thursday, December 15th is the Pre-K Red A Room’s show with Ms. Razis and Ms. Avantika at 3:30 pm in the Yellow Room. Last, but not least, Friday, December 16th is the other Pre-K Red B Room’s show with Ms. Maria and Ms. Maribel at 3:30 pm, also in the Yellow Room. We hope to see you all there!
And the fun, just never ends! Santa Claus will be coming to Merryhill School on December 12th at 9:00 AM. Santa always comes with gifts for the children! These gifts are brought in by YOU, the parents…please. Each family will bring in one or two wrapped books, so that we have enough wrapped books to give out from Santa. Please bring the gift wrapped book in by tomorrow night, December 6th.
Finally, this Friday, December 9th we will have our “Multi-Cultural” lunch potluck from 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM (*Important Reminder: Please look at the ingredients and make sure there are no nuts or nut products used*). We have children that have Epi-Pens here and they can go into anaphylactic shock if they were to ingest a nut product. Please join us for our yummy nut-free lunch with the children where we will share foods from all around the world!! The children may also dress in their culture’s attire for this festive day! We have so much in store for December!! Try to relax…check the newsletter for dates…and enjoy all of the fun!
Lunch Master head’s up…the catering company will be closed for the Holidays the week of December 26th – December 30th. Please remember to pack your child’s lunch if they will be coming to school for those 3 days we are open that week. We will not have any extra lunches to give since the catering company will not be delivering that week!
We wish you a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year!
“All the flowers of tomorrow are in the seeds we sow today.”

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, 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!
