Winter Village After-School Care

To help parents manage their plans to attend Winter Village this year, Mrs. Amira’s class is offering after school care on Thursday, December 14th. The cost is $10.00 per student ($8.00 per sibling add on) and spans from 4:15pm to 5:15 pm. Space is available on a first-reserved basis. So sign up TODAY by completing the online registration/electronic permission form which gives your child permission to participate in Ms. Amira after-school care activities on next Thursday. Advance registration is required and includes the cost of pizza and activities for your child(ren).

Parents are asked to pick their student(s) up from the gym no later than 5:15 pm. Any students remaining at that time will be escorted to the auditorium and seated together for the Winter Village musical performance.

Winter Village Is Coming Soon!

Anyone new to PRM will have their first experience of our special Winter Village event on Thursday, Dec. 14. Returning families know it’s an evening not to miss! The chorus and band will kick off the evening with a performance at 5:30 p.m. in the auditorium.

After musical entertainment, families will disperse to their own classrooms for a fun evening of celebration. Each classroom is unique; you should receive specific information directly from your child’s teacher or room parent.

Remember, allow plenty of time for parking. Space will be available at St. Ann’s. Please do not block our neighbors’ driveways. Also, seating in the auditorium is limited. Please consider having small children sit in a parent’s lap or check out the reserved seating (below). See you there!

Why We Sell Autobell Gift Cards

Each year, our Upper El Students sell Autobell gift cards to help pay for their overnight field trip to MTOS (Mountain Trail Outdoor Leadership School) in Hendersonville, NC. The majority of the trip is covered by family fees, but we supplement the fees through this fundraiser to ensure every child is able to attend this community-building trip.

Fifth-grader Lauren Pugh writes: “Some of the you might be thinking, why do we have to go to MTOS – we can do all the stuff that they do at MTOS right here in Charlotte. Well, you could just put up a few poles and call it an orienteering course, but it wouldn’t be the same. Especially with activities like forest ecology and water ecology. … When we do forest ecology we always hike up a mountain and learn about plants and animals on the way up, then we do a solo hike on the way down.”

Read more here about why she values the annual event.

This year, our goal for Autobell is to sell 1,150 tickets. We’re halfway to our goal and need your help! Buy tickets online or approach any Upper El student for tickets. Coming soon to carpool line!!

For every $20 gift card sold, $10 comes back to our school. Thanks for supporting our school’s unique curriculum.
