First Week of School

We have had an amazing first week of school for the 2019-2020 school year and cannot wait for all of the weeks yet to come! The students are hard at work, enjoying their new classrooms and teachers, and eager for all of the their new learning experiences.


We are blessed to have all of your children in our Merryhill family and thank you for sharing your special students with us!

Enrichment Classes

The flier for enrichment classes will be sent home today. All classes will begin in September and will run for a fall session (September, October, and November). We will then enroll for the winter session and later the spring session. All classes are held during the school hours. Please look for these fliers and get your student in a few of these classes.

Uniforms

As a reminder, students in Kindergarten and older are required to wear Merryhill uniforms each day of the week, unless they choose to participate in the special dress days on Fridays. If you ordered additional uniform pieces, those will be arriving in the next week or two. In addition, we will place another order at the beginning of September and each month following.


We do also have spirit shirts on hand and will continue to place orders for those throughout the year.

We will be hosting parent orientation for all Kindergarten parents and all new elementary parents on Tuesday, August 27th at 6:00 p.m. in the gymnasium.
