Hello Merryhill Familes,
April has come to an end. We spent last month celebrating your children and their uniqueness, with special activities during the Week of the Young Child. Rad Tad, from the City of Henderson aquatics, came to remind your children how they can stay safe around the water. We had fabulous celebrations during our spring parties, and showed our love to the earth as we planted fruits, vegetables, and herbs in our garden outdoors during Earth Day. If any of us have a green thumb, we will enjoy “home grown” strawberries, watermelon, tomatoes, and more in a few months.
May brings us to the close of the school year and is such a busy time. Please make sure to mark the following dates on your calendar:
Friday, May 3rd–10:00 am-12:00 pm=Cinco de Mayo celebration. We will enjoy Mariachi performers from 10:00–11:00 am and lunch on the playground from 11:00 am-12:00 pm. Families are welcome to join us for cheese quesadillas, with beans and rice.
Saturday, May 4th–10:00 am-1:00 pm=Open House. If you know of a family that would like to join our Merryhill community, please invite them to join us for a tour.

Whew! With such a busy month ahead, please double and triple check that you have all of these dates marked on your calendar. We don’t want you to miss out on anything.
Please remember that if you are not in need of the handicap parking space, we ask that you not park in that spot. We have families that truly need that space to be available to them.
Another reminder to please not let people piggy back off of you when you are entering or exiting the building. I cannot stress the importance of this enough as we all work together to keep your children safe.
If you have any questions about any of the above events, please do not hesitate to check with your child’s teacher or a member of the front office.
