Dearest Merryhill families,
November is a time to be thankful for all the blessings in our lives! We here at Merryhill School are very thankful for our children and families that we serve each and every day. Since the busy holiday season in November and December are quickly approaching , we would like to give back a small portion to our local community. Starting November 27th we will be collecting toys for “Toys for Tots”. Once the toy drive is over we will have our local Marine department come out and collect the toys from the children. This will be a great “giving” and learning experience for the children and something we take pride in every year! More details will come once we get closer to the “Giving” Event.
I want to send out a special thank you again to our amazing teachers who made Halloween so much fun with dress up days and mind-blowing, custom made costumes!! Every year they just get better and better! This year the teachers topped it off walking in with their very own theme song that went along with the custom made costumes! I am so proud of our teachers and I love our school so very much!!
We had the most SPOOK-TACULAR time here at Merryhill Preschool! Thanks for being part of our family!
Important Note for future Kindergartners:
For our children who are graduating to Kindergarten in the new school year, visit the Elementary front office for information on how to reserve your spot! There will be a Kindergarten Orientation on the Elementary side January 17, 2018 from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm (daycare provided). This would be the perfect time to learn more about the program. Keep an eye out for Karen Cooper’s emails. She has emailed you already a couple of times. If you are not receiving her emails, please reach out to her. If you cannot make it to that event, or you want to see the Elementary School sooner, you can always schedule a personal tour with Ms. Cooper. Please contact the Elementary Principal for more details. Her name is Karen Cooper and her contact number is 408-254-1282. You can also reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Now we need to mark our calendars for many upcoming events and a few school holiday closure dates. Please check our newsletter, our website and the preschool parent white board located in front of the preschool office for all November & December events and school closure dates.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns my door is always open. We are here to help you and “our” children in any way we can. Everyone at Merryhill is special and important to us. Let us continue to make this a great school year!
“All the flowers of tomorrow are in the seeds we sow today.”
Your Preschool Principal,
Heather Bilbro Palmer

Parent Referral Program:
If there’s one thing parents love to do, it’s talk about their children’s successes.
When friends ask you about your child’s experiences at Merryhill School, what type of success stories do you share? Do you mention the personal and educational discoveries your child is making thanks to our advanced curriculum? Do you talk about the new levels of self and social confidence your child has gained thanks to our encouraging atmosphere?
*For every new child you refer who enrolls at our school for three months, you’ll receive one FREE week of tuition for your child*.
It’s our way of saying thanks for doing what comes naturally – singing the praises of your child and sharing your experiences with the Merryhill School difference!!
From the Education Department
*Participate in our new Automatic Payment Program
Tired of having to remember weekly tuition payments? Save time and avoid late fees with this program. Contact your school principal for more information on how to join.
