The Nutcracker and the 4 Realms of Merryhill Preschool
This month we will have our annual Christmas Performances on Tuesday, Dec 11, 2018 from 3:00 to 4:30 pm. This year we will start promptly at 3:00 pm with a story about Clara and the Nutcracker trying to find the key to the Kingdom in the 4 realms of Merryhill Preschool. Clara and the Nutcracker will go through each classroom which is setup in 4 different realms (see below). Come and join us through this magical show as we search for the Kingdom key to Clara’s family.
Here are the times for those tentative performances.
Beginners: Mrs. Spring and Mrs. Isela’s class will perform at 3:15 pm (Land of the Sweets)
Intermediate 1: Mrs. Erika and Mrs. Lisa’s will perform at 3:25 pm (Land of the Christmas Trees)

Christmas in the Park Tree Hunt
Address: 191-199 S Market St, San Jose, CA 95113
During our Thanksgiving Dinner, our families had a chance to decorate their own family ornament. The teachers then took these ornaments and decorated our Merryhill Preschool Tree at Christmas in the Park in downtown San Jose, CA. We are challenging our students to go down to Christmas in the Park and find our tree. Snap a picture of your child next to our Merryhill School Corning Tree and email it to me at email@example.com. I will do a raffle with all the pictures I receive. The prize will be a $50 gift card. This will go through the end of December. Winners will be announced the first week in January 2019. Happy Hunting!
Bonus Tickets: Look for our Merryhill Elementary Yosemite Tree. Snap a picture of your child next to the Elementary Tree and get an extra chance to win the $50 gift card.

This year we are doing something a little different for our students. We will be teaching our students the value of money and buying a gift off a shopping list. We will be setting up a Lil’ Shopper’s Shoppe in the dramatic play area for our students to shop during a specific time designated to their class. We will be starting this on Dec 3 through Dec 7 and Dec 17 through Dec 21. The timings will be from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm (closed during naptime). Please look out for a flyer and a shopping list that will go home on Monday, Dec 3 with your child. You can send money with your child or purchase a gift certificate online that can be used the same as cash. We ask that all money or certificates be put in the tuition box along with the shopping list OR to the office. Happy Shopping!
Book Fair Fundraiser
On December 10-14, 2018, our school will be hosting a Book Fair for our students. Please look for your child’s teacher wishlist in case you would like to purchase a book for your child’s classroom. The fundraiser will help purchase books for our Book-a-Night Reading Program.
