Back to School at Merryhill School

Volume I

First Day of School - August 20th

We are so excited about the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year! We hope that everyone is having a wonderful relaxing summer and will be ready to jump into a wonderful new school year in a couple of months!


We do not want to rush summer for any of you, but we want to keep you informed and help you to be prepared for the school year. We will be sending a few of these newsletters with information to help you be ready.

School Supplies

Many of you have pre-ordered pre-packaged school supplies, and those will be ready for you to pick up and label in early August. For those that want to purchase your own supplies, those lists are attached. Please be reminded that headphones and planners were not included in pre-packaged supplies; however, all elementary students will need those.


In addition, all elementary students will need planners. Those will be available for pick up at the Back to School picnic on Friday, August 17th. If you did not pre-order, you will need to purchase one for $10 that day.

2018-2019 Calendar

The 2018-2019 calendar is attached as you are planning events for the upcoming year.

Administrative Team

My administrative team and I look forward to working with each of your students next year. For those of you that do not know all of us already, we are excited to get to know each of you. Please do not hesitate to contact any of us if you have any questions.
