From the Principal’s Office
We would like to express our sincere thanks to all of our families who helped make our “Week of the Young Child” celebration a huge success! Our Playday/Homecoming was beyond what words can express. It was a wonderful celebration of Miss Linda’s retirement and we were so happy to see so many old friends return “Home”. The Week of the Young Child was also so much fun for the children. We all enjoyed the Mad Scientist, Sock Hop Day, Park & Picnic Days. We ended our week with our traditional St. Jude’s Trike-a-Thon. Thank you for your donations to such a worthy cause. And a big thank you for bringing in all the necessary items for this very special week, but most importantly your support. We truly appreciate all you do and we are looking forward to next year when we once again designate this special week to celebrate children!
We will kick off May with our Mother’s Day Tea Parties, then celebrate our teachers with Teacher Appreciation Week. We will also host an Open House on Tuesday, May 9th during our late afternoon hours. If you have friends are interested in tour our school, please let them know. We would be more than happy to tell them about Merryhill – Laguna.

Teacher Appreciation Week
Our teachers are an essential part of your child’s life. They are there to comfort, care for, and teach them while you are away from them during the day. During the week of May 22-26th you can show your appreciation to our teachers and staff. Let our teachers know how important they are to you and your child!
We all know that being a Mom can often be the most difficult job in the world, yet is by far the most rewarding. To honor all of our very special mothers, each of our classes will be busy preparing something special for each of you. This year, our Mother’s Day Tea Parties will be held on different days to accommodate parking issues and Moms being able to attend different classes.
Wednesday, May 10 – Infants/Toddlers
Thursday, May 11 – Intermediates
Friday, May 12 – Pre-K/Pre-K2
Please arrive early, because parking is limited.
Caterpillars to Butterflies
Caterpillars will soon arrive at Merryhill and the children will learn about the life cycle of a butterfly. As the caterpillars make their cocoons, we will see them emerge as beautiful butterflies.
Only Mother Nature will know the true date of our release. Please check with your child’s teacher for updates!
If you have friends that are interested in inquiring about our school, please pass the word that we will be open until 7 pm on Tuesday, May 9th for an Open House!
Remember, if you refer a family to Merryhill, you could earn up to one free week of tuition, so tell all your friends to join us!
Every Monday I send out an email, “This Week at Merryhill”. It is a list of reminders of what is happening at your child’s school for the week. Please make sure that you are checking this each week so you won’t miss out on all of our wonderful activities. If you are not receiving it, please check with the office regarding your correct email address. We want everyone to stay informed!
