Family Movie Night

Regardless of this morning's weather, tonight's show will still go on for those of you that purchased tickets! We will make a final decision later in the day exactly where we will be located, but our plans are either to remain on the grass, move to the concrete of the parking lot, or we will move indoors if needed. We are crossing our fingers for everything to dry up quickly!

The parking lot at the Methodist Church behind our field will be open for overflow parking. We will begin at 7:00 p.m., at which time dinner will be available. The movie will begin as soon as it is dark enough.

Please note that the students in the elementary will be moved to the preschool tonight at 6:00 p.m. in order for us to get the event ready.

Please bring your blankets and enjoy a nice evening movie with your family!

Merryhill Mock Election

As our country prepares for the upcoming election, we use this opportunity to help our students understand the processes by which our government operates. Our students will be hosting a Merryhill Mock Election on Thursday, October 20th from 3:45-6:00 p.m. with our Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Grade students working the polling place. We hope that you take the opportunity to come to the elementary building to "vote" with your child. We invite friends and family to join you in voting at our mock election.

Our ballot will include the following votes: President / Vice President, Arlington Stadium Addendum, State Representative (for the district that Merryhill is in), and Favorite Lunch (winning lunch to be served on Election Day). Our students will be campaigning through the building for their favorite lunch. Look for their signs!

Our election will be held in Room 208 (in the elementary building). Please plan to take a few minutes that evening to come by.
