Hello Parents and Students,

We had another great week of school! Just a reminder that we are now less than a month away from the last day of school. Please be on the look out for important due dates, as well as the celebration of success party!

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the spring weather!

Community Service Project

Merryhill School will be participating in their last community service project for the year! Merryhill School has teamed up with Camp Kesem. Camp Kesem operates free summer camps for children who have been touched by a parent's cancer.

Merryhill School will be collecting donations to help provide fun, creative, and memorable camp activities for Camp Kesem. Each grade-level will be responsible for collecting specific items to donate to the camp. Third grade is responsible for bringing in colored balloons, colored streamers, and colored hair spray. All of these items can be found at Target, Walmart, and other party supply stores. Please bring in your items by Friday, May 20th.
