A Note From Our Principal,
We hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones and we enjoyed celebrating with you all last month. As the winter holidays approach we have many special events planned for our students and families and look forward to spending time with you. Santa will be visiting and posing for photos on the 10th. Please take a look at our hallway calendar as we have a Merry Week during December 16th-20th. The month of December we will acknowledge family traditions and holidays. Speaking of families, this year Merryhill-Laguna will adopt 5 families for the Holidays. Please be on the look out for our Christmas Tree of gifts, with what we can donate to the families. Keep on the Happy Holidays!
Winter Clothing Reminder
If you’ve not already done so, please check your child’s cubby to ensure they have an extra set of weather appropriate clothes. Students also need to come to school each day with a jacket and dressed warm enough to play outside for part of the day. If the weather is brisk we still go outside for active games and want everyone to be able to participate!
Our school is closed on December 24th- 25th for Christmas and December 31st-January 1st for New Year’s.
Classroom Holiday Celebrations—Friday, December 20th
Through the month of December our classes will be learning about different winter holidays and customs. On Friday, December 20th at 3:30 p.m. our students will showcase their holiday songs. Parents are welcome to attend and we will share extra photos on Links 2 Home for those who cannot come. Some classes are collecting small extras for their celebratory snack, please check with your child’s teacher for more information.
Holiday Giving Project
This year Merryhill-Laguna adopted 5 families from Sacramento Children’s Home. Please stop by the office and take an ornament of the wished item from our Christmas tree. When bringing in the item, please attach the ornament to the gift. All donations must be new and unwrapped. Donations will be accepted December 3rd-December 12th. We appreciate your assistance with helping families in our community.
