2019-2020 Registration

Our 2019-2020 registration is currently underway. We are so excited about another great school year ahead and cannot wait to share that wonderful learning with each of our students and Merryhill families.

Get your registration paperwork and registration fee in now; do not miss the opportunity to take advantage of the early registration discounts. Reserve your child's space in a class for next year; we will be opening the registration to the public beginning March 1st.

Step Up Day

Our Pre-Kindergarten and elementary students had Step Up Day, and we had a GREAT morning!! During this event, our Pre-Kindergarteners become Kindergarteners for the day, Kindergarteners become 1st Graders, and so on. The students had a wonderful day and cannot wait for the six months until they really "grow up" to that grade!

Area Spelling Bee

Congratulations to Hayden S. in 5th Grade for doing a FANTASTIC job representing Merryhill School in the Scripps Area Spelling Bee yesterday held at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School in Keller. Great job Hayden - we are so proud of you!

After School Homework Time

A big thank you to the many of you that responded to me regarding homework time. Your opinions are invaluable to us, and I truly appreciate the time taken to give me your thoughts. Overwhelmingly you were in agreement about keeping this time in the after school program, so we will continue to have a guided homework time for 30 minutes in each classroom Monday through Thursday.
