Jump Rope for Heart is Back
Our school will be participating in Jump Rope for Heart this year! PRM does Jump Rope for Heart every other year to fundraise for the American Heart Association. The American Heart Association is 2nd only to the US government in funding research for heart disease and stroke.

Coach Strait will be sending JRFH packets home with your child next week for you to look over. The actual JRFH event will take place during students’ PE classes the week of March 13. You can get more information and register online here to get an early start on fundraising! We will only accept ONLINE donations this year; please do not send cash or checks to school.

Stock Up On School Supplies
Does your student need new school supplies? Has their math or language composition book filled up and it’s time to replace it? Do they need pencil sharpeners, glue sticks or graph paper? Notebook paper? Please tell them to come by the school store to pick up their extra supplies It’s so much more convenient for you and it supports Ms. Sandy’s upper el field trips!
Yearbook Photos Needed
Yearbook preparation is underway and we desperately need photos! Photos are especially needed of last year’s Montessori Marathon (we don’t have any!) as well as classroom photos — think field trips, work cycle, lunch, etc. Please send any — and as many photos as you can to prmyearbook@gmail.com. Thank you for helping make our school yearbook a success!
PRM Loves Animals
For the whole month of February PRMCares want to show some love to our furry and feathered friends! We are working with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Care and Control to help them provide the best care for animals and to educate the public on the best way to care for their pets, in addition to getting supplies. We are asking that you consider donating online HERE to one of the many great programs that need assistance OR HERE to get something off their Amazon Wish list. Be sure to mention PRMCares in the comments so Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control will know just how much we LOVE them!

We also want to highlight the wonderful care and love our Park Road Montessori family shows to our OWN furry, feathered and finned (or scaled) friends at home. Please send us a photo and a brief description of how you show love to animals to PRMRESOURCE@Gmail.com. Each week in February we will share your photos and stories of the way PRMCares and shows love on our blog!

Good News for the Montessori Community
Primary teacher Carey Montgomery recently was invited to speak at the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education conference in Washington, DC.

She is happy to announce that the state Board of Education is expected to approve such recognition this month.
