Message from the Principal:
Hello Rocklin Merryhill Families!
Here we are looking at March already! Several of our classes will monitoring the weather through bar graphs as our little meteorologists try to predict what mother nature has in store for us this month.
We will celebrate Read Across America Day the entire first week of March by sharing books by Mo Willems. We will also throw in some Dr. Seuss books for good measure! There are some fun activities planned for this week, so make sure to check in with your child to see what is happening. There may even be a visit from a special, trouble making CAT on this week! The students always look forward to the mischief when a certain Leprechaun comes to visit on St. Patrick’s Day! They just never know what kind of trouble he will cause! He usually leaves a special treat for them though, so I guess that makes the trouble worth it!
We received our Parent Survey results. I was deeply touched by the high praise you had for my staff and school. There were a few concerns that I will address in a letter within the next couple of weeks. Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey and share your thoughts with us. I truly do appreciate when you share concerns as well as compliments.
Our Priority Registration period for the 2017-2018 school year begins on March 8, and runs through March 17. We are adding something special this year with a Priority Registration “Super Savings Day.” On Wednesday, March 8, only, we will be offering registration for $75 plus the activity fee ($65) for toddlers and above! March 9 through the 17th, registration will be $90, plus the activity fee. After March 17, the registration fee will increase to the returning student rate of $140, plus the activity fee. Don’t miss out on the savings and register now! Remember we are always available if you have any questions about next year.
As always, we appreciate your continued confidence in Merryhill and are grateful for the opportunity to share in your children’s lives.

For Parents and Teachers
“Each student is a unique person and a powerful learner capable of great achievements. I truly marvel at my students’ capacity for learning, accomplishment and growth.”
-Michele Forman – American National Teacher of the Year
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 accept credit card payments. Please talk to Sue or Aubrey for more information.
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.
