Merryhill Family

I wanted to take an opportunity to share how blessed we are to have you share your students with us. We truly believe that our school is a family and that is the way in which we proceed daily with our students.

I was reminded this week that we are family for our current and past students. An entire class of former graduates came back together to provide love and support to a classmate when the family needed it.

I was so touched about how this group from our Merryhill family rallied together, even after being several years post 6th grade graduation, to be the close knit family that we pride ourselves on.

I firmly believe that it takes a village to raise children! Please be reminded that we are family, and we are proud to be part of your "village." Hold your children tight and thank you for sharing them with us!

Picture Days - Next Week

We will have our fall picture days next Monday and Tuesday. The picture day schedules will be as follows:

  • Monday, September 23rd - All preschool students (Infants through Pre-Kindergarten) will take individual and class photos. (Class photos will only be taken for Beginners through 6th grade - no class photos for Infants or Toddlers.) Sibling photos will be taken on Monday for all groups that include a preschool student.

  • Monday, September 23rd - All elementary students will take yearbook and class photos in their normal uniform.

  • Tuesday, September 24th - All elementary students will take fall pictures. This is a free dress day for elementary students.

Parent Referral

A big thank you to the families that have referred new families to our school. New families are often looking for feedback and recommendations from friends and families, and we appreciate you sharing our school with others.

In addition to the free week of tuition received after a referral, we often will hold drawings for additional prizes. The Che family received a gift basket of Merryhill goodies and a $100 Target gift card! Thank you to all of our great referrals! We will hold another drawing before the end of 2019.
