Invest in Your Child!

We have officially begun our school’s major fundraiser – Invest in your Child! Your donations will go directly into our children’s classrooms and will help our teachers to purchase new Montessori materials and educational tools used by our students every day. Our children become innovators and creators, and we get to witness the unlocking of true potential!

It is a promise of Park Road Montessori PTO to support and celebrate the Montessori tradition of education and ensure our children have the necessary tools they need to grow. Your contributions also support teacher enrichment for our staff members. Don’t forget that many employers will provide matching funds.

Donations are being accepted online HERE.

If you prefer to contribute via check, please place a check made out to PRM PTO in the PTO dropbox in the main lobby. Include your student’s name, teacher, and “Invest” on the outside.

Thank you for all of your dedication in supporting our wonderful school!

Peace Day - September 20th Join us Thursday, September 20th for our Peace Day ceremony in the Peace Garden. This is a beautiful tradition at Park Road, and we love to have families join us. Our short ceremony will begin at 9:30 a.m. followed by gardening in many classrooms. Look for specific information about gardening from your teacher or room parent.

Upper El Game Night - September 20th Upper El students are invited to join us in the D Wing from right after school until 9 p.m. for hours of open gaming, pizza, and a bake sale. Students can come late and/or leave early. They don’t have to stay after school.

We will have a raffle, tournaments, and any fun games (sorry, not the video kind) imaginable so come on out and have fun. Email our classroom assistant, Ms. Kim, to arrange the necessary permission to stay after school, including parent name and contact info, child’s teacher, and expressed permission to stay after. 

Cost will be $10 per child for the whole night, plus extra for pizza, treats, and activities like raffles. Send cash in an envelope to Ms. Kim in Curt’s room, D-5. Parents, please be prompt to pick up at 9 p.m, and students are strongly encouraged to bring the games they most want to play. This event is a fundraiser for class trips. See you then!

Lower El Fun Night - September 20th Parents, do you want a night off? Well then sign your 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade child up for Lower EL Fun Night, on September 20th, from dismissal to 8:30 p.m. This is the same night as Upper EL Game Night.

We will pick up your Lower El child(ren) from their classroom on Friday at dismissal and have fun playing indoor and outdoor games, doing crafts, eating snacks and pizza, and watching a movie! $20 for the first kid and $15 for each additional child from the same family. It will be a fun night! All proceeds support Ms. Karen’s 6th grade field trip to Washington DC!

Please fill out this sign-up form and permission slip, and send it in to the PTO drop box in the main lobby if you would like to pay with cash or check. (Checks should be made out to PRM PTO.) Or if you prefer to pay online, you can do so by following the directions listed at this link.

Small Fundraisers Make a Big Difference! Please remember to link your Harris Teeter VIC card to PRM in store or online. Even if you have previously linked your card, this must be done every school year.  

Box Tops is now digital! The Box Tops clips are currently being phased out. We can now use the Box Tops app to scan a store receipt to find participating products. The app will automatically credit PRM’s account online. Be sure to scan your receipt within 14 days of purchase to earn credit. In the meantime, we are still collecting Box Tops clips from packages until they expire, so continue to drop those off in the main lobby.
