Montessori Marathon Has Begun!

Montessori Marathon is one of only two fundraisers PRM does all year to raise money for our classrooms, and the campaign starts now! All the funds raised will go directly to our teachers to buy classroom materials and make continued improvements over the summer.  We know you’ve just generously donated to Jump Rope for Heart, which helped support the American Heart Association. All of the money raised in this campaign will go directly into our school – you will be able to see your funds at work in your children’s classrooms!

Donate securely online or make checks out to PRM PTO!

Our fundraising campaign will run from March 11th through April 5th. During this time we will ask students to reach out to friends or family in as many states or countries as possible- our goal is to have funds from all 50 states and at least 5 different continents! It’s a fun opportunity to brush up those geography skills!

The children will also train with Coach Strait, and on April 5th, the campaign will culminate in the RUN! We will lace up those running shoes and organize a “team” for each classroom to participate in a fun run of a few victory laps for all of their efforts! Classes will be staggered into 20-minute blocks. We will have a finish line, refreshments after the run, and lots of fun photo ops on race day, so come out to watch your child’s classroom run on the 5th! We will send out the run schedule and a sign up for race-day volunteers soon.

The next time you visit the school, take a peek at the bulletin board outside of the main office. We are coloring in the states we receive donations from and checking off those continents!  Thank you for your support of this important effort! Our great families are what make this school tremendous!

Please make your donations online HERE and be sure to share the link with family and friends!
