June was lots of fun with lots of learning and getting to know each other! July will be full of exciting learning and fun events. Many of which are our “Giving Event” that starts on July 8th, Camping under the Stars on July 9th, snow cone party on July 24th and our always loved petting zoo on August 7th. Yes, we will have real farm animals visit us in our back yard. For all event details see the calendar below or our website calendar.
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 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. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us.
**Starting July 8th, we will accept new and gently-used baby clothing in sizes 0-12 months. Blankets, bibs, socks, shoes, baby carriers and board books are also welcome. Please make sure clothes are clean, stain-free and buttoned up. Donations will be sorted and packed into boxes that can be used throughout the first year of a baby’s life. This event is for our “Giving” event this summer. The organization that we are supporting is called “Loved Twice” and they distribute these clothes to children in need right here in the bay area!
** On July 8th please bring in a small play, pop up tent. We will need them all here by Tuesday, July 9th in the AM. We will use these for our “Camping under the Stars” event at 3:30 pm on July 9th. All parents are welcome to join us for the fun times had while we read books under the stars (outside on the playground)!
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!!
