Our Scholastic Book Fair will also make it’s way here this month. Check out our teacher Wish Lists and remember that the holidays are right around the corner and books make great gifts!
Fall Festival will be on Saturday, October 14th from 10:30 – 1:00 pm. Everyone is invited to attend, so save the date!

Scholastic Book Fair
It is once again time for our Scholastic Book Fair. The book fair will run from September 11th-15th. As usual, our teachers will pick out their “favorites” and will place those on their wish list for you to purchase for their class. These books are a wonderful addition to our classroom libraries. The funds raised will be used to add books to our libraries and curriculum materials to our classrooms. We hope that you will take this opportunity to purchase these high quality books for your children. And don’t forget that they will make the perfect holiday gift.
Thanks for your support!
Johnny Appleseed Day
On Friday, September 22nd we will celebrate Johnny Appleseed Day. Join in the fun by wearing your favorite overalls or apple picking clothes. A small pot for your head will fit in just perfect, so bring one to school. The children will taste test a variety of apples and apple recipes, while learning all about Johnny Appleseed.
As a reminder, Merryhill will be CLOSED on Monday, September 4th in observance of Labor Day.
