Merry Oaks Elementary School

Dear Joseph Canty and Staff, Thank you so much for coming to Merry Oaks Elementary School and giving our fifth graders such an outstanding assembly this fall. It was wonderful for the students to participate in a presentation in which they actually got to move! I am the P.E. teacher,  and students still talk to me about the assembly, and how they want to be physically fit  like you and your staff.  The motivation, and important information you and your staff shared with these student have left an important impression on them. Thank you for selecting our school and helping educate our students to make healthy, life long choices.  - Marcy C.
