Grandparents Day Breakfast

We are excited to welcome all of our grandparents to join us for breakfast next Friday, September 7th from 7:00-8:15 a.m. We are so appreciative of the wonderful relationship that grandparents have with their very special grandchildren, and we are thrilled to celebrate you!

Ice Cream Cards

Each Friday, our 6th Grade students sell ice cream in the afternoon, as they are raising money for their spring class trip. If you are interested in participating, you can either purchase an ice cream card for the school year for $35, or you can bring $1.00 each week. The elementary children can keep their dollar in their backpack until it is time for ice cream; preschool children can give their dollar to the classroom teacher.

Tuition Payments

Please be reminded that tuition is due by end of business Tuesday each week. There will be a $25 late fee assessed to any outstanding account beginning on Wednesday morning. Thank you!

Uniforms

Elementary students are expected to be in uniform Monday through Thursday; Friday is free dress day. Please be reminded that solid color bottoms are appropriate to be worn with Merryhill shirts; athletic or sweat material bottoms are not permitted.

Colors of Love - Friday, September 7th

The first Friday of each month is Colors of Love. This is a day for our students and faculty to wear a color that signifies awareness for something important to them.

Parenting Resources - Preschool Parenting Resources

When we are parenting young children, there are often new challenges and hurdles, and it is wonderful to have great resources for some of those questions.
