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!
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. Please read through this newsletter carefully, and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
As mentioned in my note earlier today, we have had quite a bit of movement after 2 internal promotions! Ms. Morgan is now our School Office Administrator, and Ms. Mieko is our Assistant Principal! Both girls are incredibly excited to hit the ground running and we will be spending much of next week dialing in our events for the rest of the year! As those details come to fruition we will update you! We’re going to be adding in more Parent Night Out Events and we will be working hard behind the scenes to ensure all students and families, whether it’s your 1st day or 500th day, feel welcomed and appreciated at Merryhill School!
Holiday Closures and School Year Calendar
Our school does not follow the local elementary school schedule as we are open more days per year. Please use this link to navigate to our Yearly Calendar. It is also available in the lobby.
Please bookmark this link to our Events Calendar.
Links 2 Home
If you’re not currently receiving photos and daily reports for your child you can easily change this by downloading the Links 2 Home app on your phone. Just type ‘Links 2 Home’ in the search bar for the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. After downloading Links 2 Home you can register with the same email address that you used to enroll your child in our school. Links 2 Home also allows you to leave drop-off notes for your child and notify your child’s teacher of absences. If you’re having issues accessing Links 2 Home please let us know.
Calling all Grandparents! We will have a painting and lemonade party in each of our playground for you to enjoy with your Grandchild(ren). Please RSVP in the lobby!
We will be hosting this event from 3:00pm-4:00pm on Friday September 13th.
Extra Curricular Activity Options
Do you have a door code or do you use someone else’s? Everyone should have their own door code, so please let Ms. Jill know if you need your own code. With everyone having separate codes, we can pinpoint who picked up a child using our Tadpoles system as well as with our Sonitrol Security System.
Holding the Door Open:
Although the Canadian in me wants to hold the door open for everyone, please don’t make this a habit. If you’re not sure who is coming in behind you, please don’t feel bad about having them wait until the door is closed.
Speed through the Parking Lot:
Keep kids alive, drive 25 (or slower…) as you approach the school. Please proceed with caution upon exiting and entering the parking lot as many of our little ones aren’t always as visible as parents.
Back to School Night!
Come meet your Teachers and explore your child’s classroom on September 20th! More details to come!
