We have rolled into August already! It has now been a month since your child made the transition into their new classroom. We are very excited to see how everyone has adjusted so well. Evidence of Learning is everywhere, the children are exploring new things, the garden is looking great and the teachers are enjoying their new class. Thank you to everyone who made it to our Back to School Ice-Cream Social. It was so much fun. I can’t wait until we do it again next summer! We are looking forward to the upcoming Fall events. Links to Learning is in Action! Here at Merryhill, we love to take pictures of the children exploring and learning. Please be sure to check your email for our daily pictures the teachers send out.
Sincerely, Stephanie Gill/Principal

Links to Learning is Fun! Links to Learning is a program that brings teachers and parents closer. At the end of each month a folder will be given to you containing information about the developmental skills your child had learned that month, and what to expect with the curriculum in the next month. Spanish will also be included in this folder. When you pick-up your child’s Links to Learning Folder at the end of each month, it is important for you to remove all information and return the empty folder to your child’s teacher so she can start to prepare it for the next month.
Parent Ambassador Program If there is one thing that parents love to do, it’s talk about their children’s successes. When friends ask you about your child’s experience at Merryhill, what type of success stories do you share? Do you mention the personal and educational discoveries that 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?
Whatever the glowing reports you deliver about how your child is growing with his or her education, we couldn’t be more appreciative. In fact, we’d like to show you just how thankful we are for your endorsements. Now when you tell other parents about our school, you can become a Merryhill School Parent Ambassador! For every new child you refer who enrolls at our school and starts by September 1st, You’ll receive a free week of tuition right away instead of waiting the normal 90 day grace period!
We will have 1 cooking session coming up this month: August 6-August 9.If you are interested in signing your child up, please see the front desk!
**We are a nut-free school. Please make sure your child is not bringing any snacks to school that contain nuts. Thank you**
