Hello Parents and Students,

We had another great week...only 12 school days left! We have lots of important events coming up. Just a reminder that the Career Report notes pages are due on Monday. We will be hosting our Celebration of Success on Tuesday at 8:30 in Room 8. The celebration will last about 30 minutes. We will also be having our last math assessment on Friday (yay!).

Have a wonderful week and try to stay dry!

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.
