Open House Recap!

open_houseWe’d like to express our thanks to many parties with regards to last Tuesday’s Merriam Open House.  Ed’s opening comments (excerpts to be published in this Friday’s Newsletter) set the tone for the year at Merriam, prominently featuring our 2016-17 Community Theme: “Gratitude”.  The teachers deserve recognition for their informative and entertaining presentations on the curriculum, the field trips, and the other highlights our children have ahead of them in the coming year.  Both the teachers AND the students worked hard in the opening weeks of school to ensure that the classrooms would be welcoming, and filled with  work and art for us to admire.  Finally, appreciation for the parents!!  So many of you came out, participated in the discussions, enjoyed the classrooms, and socialized a little.  Thanks to everyone for making the evening a success!
