A Note From Our Principal,
With the start of the new year I am excited to jump into 2018 with vigor and a fresh outlook and I hope both you and your children feel the same way! Our Links to Learning curriculum is helping us provide the opportunities to set new goals and provide your children with the best educational program possible.
We are very excited for the changes that have made our Beginner 2 classroom a warm, welcoming environment and we couldn’t be happier with how well the students have adapted to their new classroom. If you haven’t seen our renovation, please feel free to drop by and take a look! As we move forward I am thrilled to be able to be able to bring new experiences and learning opportunities to each of our classrooms, ensuring that the education that Merryhill students receive is among the very best.
Our Parent Surveys will launch January 2nd – January 5th via your email. If you do not receive a parent survey by Friday, January 5th, please let us know so we can have our marketing department resend one to you. The goal of our teachers and staff at Merryhill-Davis is to provide the best possible care and early childhood education for your child. I am proud of our teachers; they are there to nurture your children and work together as partners with you, to help your child reach their highest potential. Thank you in advance for your positive comments.
It will also soon be time to reserve your child’s spot for our upcoming 2018-2019 school year. For those children (Infants-Intermediates) that will be returning for next year, look for information on our Priority Registration at the end of February or beginning of March.
Links 2 Home
You can keep up with your child’s day to day activities with daily reports and photos from our app, Links 2 Home. If you do not currently have Links 2 Home on your mobile device or would like to get reacquainted you can simply download the app through the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. If you’ve not done so you will need to create an account with the email address we have on file for you at our school. Please let us know if you have any questions!
Monthly Parent Folders
Each month our teachers summarize your child’s learning and send it home in a folder to you all. These folders contain:
- Previous month’s skills, concepts, activities and goals
- A preview of skills for the upcoming month and suggestions of activities to continue the learning at home
- Samples of your child’s work
We truly love creating and sharing these pieces with each of you. Be on the lookout for the January parent folder at the end of the month!
The classroom parent board has valuable information about the progress of classroom curriculum. Parent boards include:
- Monthly Spanish vocabulary and phrases
- Weekly skills focus at a glance
- Weekly lesson plan created by the teacher
- Learning outcome goals for the year/program
Please check your classroom’s parent board for more information.
