Join Classmates for PRM Winter Village

Anyone new to PRM will have their first experience of our special Winter Village event Thursday, Dec. 15. Returning families know it’s an evening not to miss! All families will meet in the auditorium at 5:30 p.m. for a brief PTO update and some musical entertainment by our very own student musical chorale.

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 teacher or room parent. See you there!

Meet our 25th Anniversary Sculptor: Robert Toth
img_9928-2Robert Toth is a world-renowned bronze sculptor, with works commissioned for the Lincoln Center, the National Gallery and the Vatican, among many others. He has a special interest in our 25th Anniversary project because Montessori methods helped him through his early struggles with ADHD. He lives in Salisbury, NC and has offered to speak at the school about his creative process and how Montessori changed his life.

The sculpture he has created for us will be cast in bronze and located in the center of our new Peace Garden, at the front of our school. (See black and white photo) Once mounted on its pedestal, it will also serve as a sundial!

Learn more about Mr.Toth, our 25th Anniversary Project and order your brick here.
