A Note From Our Principal,
Summer has come to an end and another school year is upon us. We’d like to extend a warm welcome to our new families, and a sincere thank you to returning families and those that chose to spend their summer with us. We enjoyed making memories with your children!
I would like to thank you for a successful Multicultural Back to School Night. It was a pleasure seeing everyone come together and enjoy a diversity of traditional food while welcoming and catching up with Merryhill families. The children had a good time dancing and playing on the drums. I look forward to the many upcoming events!
We recognize that this is a busy time for many families and are using this month’s school newsletter to include reminders on school closures, communication, security and more.
Grandparents Paint Extravaganza
Grandparents day is around the corner and what better way is it, but to spend time with your grandchild. Lets have the children get some inspiration from a diversity of artwork while painting with their grandparents. Everyone will enjoy lemonade, cookies and of course painting.

It’s time to get spiffed up for fall pictures! Lifetouch will be taking photos of all of our students on September 16th and 17th . Please send your student to school in the clothes you want them to wear for their photo. All photos will be taken before lunch and naptime to ensure optimal cuteness.
