Lads and Ladies Dance - Friday, April 5th
Please be reminded that the elementary building will be closing tonight at 5:30 p.m.; any students still here at that time will be moved to the preschool building.
Reading Month Continues...............
ERB Standardized Testing
April 8: Practice tests for all grades 1-6
April 15-17: Kindergarten and 1st Grade testing
April 22-25: 2nd-6th Grade testing
We will ask any Pre-Kindergarten students arriving after 8:15 on testing days to enter the preschool, where they will remain until after each day's testing session is over. Any elementary students arriving late will be kept in the office until the testing session is complete. It is critical that we keep our hallways completely quiet during the testing.
As a reminder, when you refer a family, you earn a free week of tuition for one child after the new student has been enrolled for 3 months!! In addition, we will be doing a raffle drawing from all of our family referrals between March 15th and April 15th for great Merryhill gear and prizes, as well as a $50 Chili's gift card! We will announce our winner on April 15th!
