Welcome to the new school year 2019/2020. We have started off nicely with our new students. In the first few days of this month, we are getting to know each other, and the children are getting adjusted to their new environment. We have amazing learning themes coming up with many hands-on learning activities. For our new families this is new information, but for our returning students, it is a reminder that we will not have homework over the summer. We still have academics throughout the summer months because we do not want the children to forget what they’ve learned over the school year. We will continue giving out homework assignments on August 12, 2019. If you would like to know what your child is learning throughout the week, please take a look at the Parent Board in the classroom. This will tell you all of the subjects and skills that the children will learn that week. You can also review the teacher’s lesson plans on the Parent Board to see the learning activities the teachers have planned to incorporate the subjects and skills. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.
In May, our preschool raised almost $500 for St Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Thank you for participating in the Trike-a-Thon, and supporting the great “Giving Project”!! We have planned another “Giving Project” in July for a non-profit charity called “Loved Twice”. More details to come…
Next week, on June 14th, we will have Donuts for Dads in the preschool lobby from 7:15 am – 10:30 am. This is to celebrate the dynamic dad’s out there and thank them for all they do! Take a look below at the Calendar of Events to see all of the fun activities happening this month and for the next few months.
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!!
