Fall brings us many upcoming activities, fundraisers, and special events here at Merryhill Harbour Point. Our grandparents day was a great success. We are looking forward to all Fall has to offer. It is our primary goal to provide the children with the very best educational opportunities. We love to offer fun and exciting new ways to learn and enjoy the learning process. The past couple of months we have learned about colors, watched our class volcanoes erupt, celebrated Johnny Appleseed day and so much more. This month we will learn all about the importance of books, introduce new math skills, discuss weather changes, and learn about all the upcoming holidays that will be here shorty. We will also be participating in National Book month the entire month of October. Please remember as the weather turns slightly cooler, please provide a sweatshirt or light jacket with your child’s name on it for your child. Happy Fall!
