Our PTO executive board, PTO committee leaders, staff, and students donate countless hours each month communicating and making our school the amazing community that it is. A heartfelt “Thank You” to every one of you. Your impact is felt! Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday!

(To volunteer, check out our committees and let us know how or where you would like to help.)
There are no sign-ups, but you can find specific needs lists and drop-off details on our website, PRMCares.com, as well as other small ways to give back this holiday season. Do what you can, if you can. That’s it, that’s all…and thank you!!! Happy Turkey Day!
Spirit Wear is available for purchase online via PayPal, or print out our order form and submit it through the school office with a check or cash. If ordering online, please delete all items other than Spirit Wear from your cart.
Samples will be available in the office as early as Wednesday but no later than Friday. For any questions about your order or product suggestions, contact Maury or Maureen at PRMspiritstore@gmail.com. Happy holidays!

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Debbie at email@example.com.
Although a survey was conducted in August, prior to school starting, the response rate was too low. A collaborative effort between the Magnet Office and the Montessori Parent Advisory Group helped revise the survey. So, whether you responded to the survey in August, please take a few minutes to participate in this go-round: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YJ2SCJX. The deadline to participate is Dec. 5th.
We need ALL Park Road parents to take the survey.
We will have a raffle, tournaments, and any fun games (sorry, not the video kind) imaginable, and there will be werewolves. These have been a big hit in the past, so come on out and have fun. Email our classroom assistant, Ms. Jennifer (firstname.lastname@example.org), or watch for your classroom teacher’s email to arrange the necessary permission to stay after school. You can also access the permission slip online.
Cost will be $10 per child for the whole night, plus extra for pizza, treats, and activities like raffles. Parents, please be prompt to pick up at 9, and students are strongly encouraged to bring the games they most want to play. It’s a great opportunity for parents to drop off their kids and get extra holiday shopping done. This event is a fundraiser for class trips. See you then!
Application review will begin on Friday, Dec. 12, and will continue until the class is filled. There are many low-income first- and second-graders who need the one-on-one literacy instruction our highly trained, dedicated tutors provide.
To secure your younger child’s spot at PRM, you must follow the correct procedures:
1. Enroll your child in CMS. The deadline for enrollment to be eligible for the first lottery is in early January, although CMS encourages you to complete your enrollment early, preferably before Dec. 5.
2. Enter the first lottery using the ID number and PIN that will be mailed to you after you enroll. You may enter the first lottery beginning Dec. 5.
Make sure you adhere to the timeline. You may bring the required paperwork to the PRM Office or to the Smith Family Center at 1600 Tyvola Road. Again, please remember that your sibling guarantee only applies if you follow the above procedures and meet all deadlines.
Please upload your to this Box.com website. (You may have to set up a free account to access the link, but it’s quick and simple.) Please file your photos accordingly (folders are already set up to make your uploads simple and quick): by teacher or by event (in the ##School Events, Clubs, Groups, Specials folder). If you cannot find the appropriate folder, please feel free to create a new folder or place them (well-labeled) in the Other folder.
We will try to include as many children as possible in a wide assortment of photos throughout the yearbook. If you have any questions, please contact Karen Aman at email@example.com. Please put YEARBOOK QUERY in the subject line. Yearbook sales will begin in January.
