Welcome back to school families! Our wonderful Merryhill Elementary and Middle School (Kindergarten – 6th grade) will start their academic school year next week, so I would like to welcome them all back to school too! We will continue to inspire and develop the minds of our infants through preschoolers as we continue through this fantastic journey together!
Get your calendar ready for some exciting events in the next few months! On September 6th and 7th we have our back to school pictures that will be taken by Lifetouch Photography. On Saturday, November 10th we have our annual “Back to School Pancake Breakfast” from 10:00 am – 12:00 am in your child’s classroom. Please come and visit with your child’s teachers and enjoy some yummy breakfast (catered by Denny’s) with us!
Thanks to you all, we had a wonderful turn out for the “Loved Twice” giving event!! We filled 6 large bags with clothes and infant supplies for needy children and parents in the East Side San Jose area! For our “Step 30” giving event we collected 150 shoes. In the picture below our Merryhill School students are helping load the truck with the donations. Our hearts are very happy!
If you would like to know what your child is learning throughout the week please take a look at the “Links to Learning curriculum” on the parent board in the classroom. This “Links to Learning Curriculum” will show you all of the subjects and skills the children will learn in that week. You can also review the teacher’s lesson plan on the parent board to see the learning activities the teachers have planned to incorporate the subjects and skills from the “Link to Learning curriculum”. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us.
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 make this a great school 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!!
