Witch Not-So-Spooky Fun Night Is For You?Your Upper or Lower El students can participate in a Fun Night after school on Thursday, Oct. 30. (No school Friday!) This is no trick! Your little witches and goblins will be treated to an evening of not-so-spooky fun and are invited to bring their costumes. (They will have an opportunity to change once they are at fun night.)

Lower El: Your monstrous good time will be hosted by Ms. Michelle’s and Ms Barbara’s class. It will include scary snacks, frightfully fun games and witch-crafts, ghoulish dinner and a monstrous movie (G-rated), all for just $20! Ms. Michelle’s Upper El students will pick your child up from their class to enjoy our fun night. Parents should pick up children by 8:30 p.m. in the first trailer, room C5.

We will accept the first 30 Lower Elementary children that respond by Oct 29. Please print and fill out the Permission Slip in its entirety, which is needed to attend. Return in an envelope with payment included and Ms. Michelle’s name on the front.

Upper El: Your spook-tacular good time will be hosted by Ms. Ayron’s and Ms. Sandy’s class! It will include scary snacks, frightfully fun games and witch-crafts, ghoulish dinner, a zombie bake sale and a monstrous movie (PG-rated), all for just $10 and the cost of pizza and scary treats! Please complete and return our permission slip, which includes details about pizza and treats, along with your payment. Parents should pick up children by 9 p.m. in the second trailer, D Building.

Check should be made payable to PRM. Questions? Please contact cyndiklein@bellsouth.net.

PRMCares: Our Little Free Library Is Ready!We still have some beautification plans, but she’s fully functional now. We need help to stock it! We welcome books for all ages including teens and adults. Just put them in! After that, the Little Free Library works on a trade system… “take a book, leave a book!” Enjoy!
Help Out With a PRM Special Project: Entrance GardenWe need movers, lifters and plant shakers (your shovels and other garden tools, too) to meet at the front entrance of the main PRM building from 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 1 for some dirty work. Ms. Charlotte has worked with a landscape designer to develop an Entrance Garden design. The idea is to install the new Entrance Garden, including some garden features and plants and materials. A sign and one other small raised bed are also on the agenda. Click here to sign up – And thank you!
Mark Your Calendar For Fall Spirit NightsCome out and support PRM at our first-ever Spirit Night with Buca DeBeppo next Tuesday, Oct. 28th! From 5 to 9 p.m., Buca (10915 Carolina Place Parkway) will donate 15 percent of the proceeds to our wonderful school. To-go orders will be included in the 15 percent for families who cannot stay and eat.

On Nov. 19, Game Night will take place at Toys and Co. from 4:30-8. The staff will have games set up on site and will be ready to teach our kiddos how to play. They will also have enough staff on hand to watch our little ones in case we want to get some top secret shopping done for the upcoming holiday season. Twenty percent of all proceeds from this evening will go to PRM. During the same time period, Park Road Soda Shop will donate 20 percent of all proceeds to our school, so consider grabbing a bite to eat before you get your game on! Both locations are located in Park Road Shopping Center, 4201 Park Rd.

Don’t forget to mention Park Road Montessori at checkout! Please contact jennifer.kauffman@cms.k12.nc.us with questions. Looking forward to seeing you there!
