We are happy to announce the return of Montessori Mornings! Classes will fill quickly, so don’t miss this opportunity for students to learn new, exciting skills before school, right on campus. Classes begin at 8 a.m. and end in time for students to get to class.

We are again offering our popular Drums class, led by a PRM Alum who has worked with the students for the past year.  Students can also learn new techniques at our popular Mixed Media art class, or get moving at our experimental Dance class.  All classes are taught by professional instructors and parents, be sure to check out the flyer for more details on each class!

Proceeds help fund yearly teacher conferences and projects like an updated climbing wall and the Gaga pits. Thanks for making this program successful!
