Message from the Principal:
Hello Rocklin Merryhill Families!!
October is looking to be a very busy month! We have LOTS of special activities planned for our students.
We are celebrating National book month the first week in October with the books of Jan Brett. Our students will participate in many activities that will engage them in our Links to Learning skill concept areas. This should be so much fun!
Our Halloween Carnival will be on Saturday, October 28. We’ll have lots of games and prizes! Of course, the ever popular Glow Room will be back, bigger and better than ever! There will also be a scarecrow/pumpkin decorating contest. Each class will decorate a pumpkin or design a scarecrow and you will have the opportunity to vote for your favorite during the carnival. The winning class will receive an “age appropriate” special treat! We will be combining our carnival with Truck-or-Treat again this year. Parent/grandparent volunteers will be needed for Trunk-or-Treat, so please let us know if you would like to help out.
As always, we appreciate your continued trust in Merryhill Rocklin to provide your children with the highest quality of care and education possible.

News From Our Education Department
For Parents and Teachers
“We have a powerful potential in our youth, and we must have the courage to change old ideas and practices so that we may direct their power toward good ends.”
-Mary McLeod Bethune – American Educator and Activist
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 cards. Please talk to Sue or Aubrey for more information.
Links 2 Home Binders: Our parent communication binders are located near the door of your child’s classroom. Please make sure to check them daily for Merrygrams, Ouch Reports and other notices from the office.
Art Files: Please remember to check them at least once a week to pick up 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
