From Our Education Department
We have a VERY BIG community event coming up this month. The Merryhill School of Trophy Club will be participating in the “Fun Run 4 Kindness” on Saturday, February 17th from 8am – 10am to raise awareness of Congenital Heart Defects, in memory of Joseph Adam Duet (who some of you may or may not know) passed away on March 31, 2017 at 15 months old.
We dearly miss his laugh, his joy of everything life offered, and his strength to overcome the many obstacles he faced. He was so little, yet in his short life, he touched so many hearts. We will also selling t-shirts and collection donations for “Amazing Little Hearts” a non-profit organization providing support, care, information and resources to families affected by CHD.
If you would like to purchase a shirt or make a donation please contact the front office for payment options. We hope to see a big turn out from our families the day of the run! The Wonderland Montessori has also happily agreed to join our team “Jogging for Joseph” and will be sharing the information with their staff and family members. It warms my heart that this other school was so eager to jump in and join us! This is such a wonderful opportunity for us to come together as a community and do something great in memory of our sweet little Joseph! <3
All shirt orders are due by next Wednesday, February 7th to have them in time for the run. If you are planning to attend this event PLEASE go onto the link below & mark that you will be attending the “Fun Run for Kindness” on their Facebook event. This way the people organizing the fun run are able to have an accurate head count of how many people to expect for staffing purposes. Thank you everyone for taking the time to read this, we have such amazing families here at Merryhill that we can’t wait to see the turn out of support from everyone. If you have any additional questions please contact the front office.
