Dear Merryhill families,
The countdown to the Holidays begins!
Things will be getting busier and busier as the holidays approach. Please remember to read the notes we send home, check the news board in front of the preschool door, and check our website capitol.merryhillschool.com to mark important dates on your calendars.
Our annual “Giving” event that we host every year is the “Toys for Tots” toy drive. This event kicked off already!! Please bring in an unwrapped new toy for “a child in need” and your child will receive their name on a star for our Holiday Tree. Please bring the new unwrapped toy to the preschool office. The due date for the unwrapped toys is Monday, December 11th! We will have the US Marines come out Monday morning, December 11th to say hello to the children and take our Toys for Tots toys to the children in need for the Holidays! I look forward to filling our Holiday tree with lots of stars.
Our Holiday Show is coming! We normally do all of our events outside to fit all of our lovely families, but with the winter’s cold weather we need to be inside. All shows will be located in the Yellow Room. Holiday show dates will be:
Tuesday, December 12, 2017 @ 3:30 pm – Beginner Green Room Show (The show will be located in the Yellow room classroom).
Wednesday, December 13, 2017 @ 3:30 pm – Intermediate Yellow A & B Room Show (The show will be located in the Yellow room classroom).
Thursday, December 14, 2017@ 3:30 pm – Pre-K Red Room A Show (The show will be located in the Yellow room classroom).
Friday, December 15th @ 3:30 pm – Pre-K Red Room B Show (The show will be located in the Yellow room classroom).
See you all there!!
And the fun just never ends! Santa Claus will be coming to Merryhill School on December 8th at 9:00 AM. Santa always comes with gifts for the children! These gifts are brought in by YOU, the parents…please! Each family will bring in one or two wrapped books, so that we have enough wrapped books to give out from Santa. Please bring the gift wrapped book in by next week Wednesday, December 6, 2017. Turn your wrapped book in to the Preschool Office.
Also, Next Friday, December 8, 2017 we will have our “Multi-Cultural” lunch potluck from 11:15 AM to 12:30 PM (*Important Reminder: Please look at the ingredients and make sure there are no nuts or nut products used*). We have children that have Epi-Pens here and they can go into anaphylactic shock if they were to ingest a nut product, or for some just touch a nut. Please join us for our yummy nut-free lunch with the children where we will share foods from all around the world!! The children may also dress in their culture’s clothing for this festive day! We have so much in store for December!! Try to relax…check the newsletter for dates…and enjoy all of the fun!
We wish you a Happy Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
“All the flowers of tomorrow are in the seeds we sow today.”

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
