Dear Merryhill Families
December is a busy but exciting month for us at Merryhill. We talk about families, friends, love, giving and sharing. We celebrate different holidays and cultures. It is wonderful to be able to learn and appreciate our likenesses and differences.
Sharing and caring is always a huge part of our program during the holiday season. For our community out-reach this month, we are collaborating with Engelland Vegas Born hero & Goodie Two Shoes Foundation. The Goodie Two Shoes Foundation provides disadvantaged children and children in crisis with new shoes and socks as well as other items deemed essential for good health and positive development. The Engelland’s have generously donated a signed Vegas Golden Knights Jersey and 2 tickets to a Vegas Golden Knights home came (TBD in January)! For every $20 donated to Goodie Two Shoes, you will receive one raffle ticket towards the jersey and home game tickets. The collection will run from now until December 21st.
The students are rehearsing every day for our holiday show. This is an event you don’t want to miss. If you have any questions regarding any of the activities scheduled for this month, please stop by the front office. We will be glad to assist you.
On behalf of the entire staff and myself, we wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season.
