Montessori Mornings: Summer Camp with Ms. Priti or Mr. Curt
Montessori Mornings is pleased to partner with Mr. Curt and Ms. Priti to offer two summer camps at PRM. Registration is now open and forms and payment can be submitted in the office. Checks should be made out to PRM PTO.

Mr Curt’s Stratagemics Strategy Gaming Camps
Magic, Star Wars, Settlers of Catan, Munchkin and more! These are some of the most popular face to face games in the world, and it’s what we do all day, every day. This camp is for gamers, but we don’t do video games — this is hands-on gaming. We teach new games every day and give out starters and boosters when we do; we run tournaments most days with prizes for winners; we trade, we teach, and above all, we play. This is our eleventh year, and 96% of kids who come to a Stratagemics event come back; most keep coming back again and again. Serious fun is what we do.

    Details:

  • Ages 8 and older
  • Weeks of June 20, June 27, July 5, July 11, and July 18; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Cost is $230 for Park Road Montessori students; includes $50 value of game gear.
  • Get registration information at http://www.stratagemics.camp/Camp/.

Ms. Priti’s A Peek Into Montessori
This program will help break the ice for your rising PreK and K to facilitate a joy of learning as they are introduced to the basic multisensory and sequential self-correcting Montessori materials, and practice the principles of “Grace and Courtesy.”

    Details:

  • Rising PreK and new K
  • Weeks July 18 to 21 and July 25 to 28.
  • Cost is $180 per week; 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • Snacks and juice will be provided.
  • Access the registration form here.

Ayron Dubinsky, an Upper El teacher, is offering summer tutoring – in a Montessori way – for students in rising second through rising 5th. Also, if there is a 6th grade student who is leaving and feels the need to be solid for their upcoming Middle School adventure, please feel free to contact her. The time is flexible – your choice. $20.00 an hour or so. Contact her at ayroncdubinsky@gmail.com for further information or to arrange a time.
Registration Open For Before- and After-School Program

PTO: Thinking Ahead
A huge shout out to all of our present PTO Executive Officers AND the many wonderful committee chairs! Without these parents and teachers, we could not provide the numerous events, top-notch fund-raisers and amazing communication methods.

Thinking ahead to 2016-17, please remember that volunteers are the pulse of PRM. Find a place to give of your time and talent by participating in a PTO committee or even a chair position. Check out the PTO Committee page! Or, help us fill the two open PTO Board positions:

Vice President. The Vice President shall act as an aide to the President and perform the duties of any officer in the absence of that officer, keep a record of all committee reports, coordinate volunteer positions for relevant PTO events and schoolwide events, and serve as the president-elect. – Time commitment: about 2-4 hours per month. (Note: This position could require a greater time commitment.)

Communications Coordinator. The Communications Coordinator shall coordinate and review all correspondence by the Organization, oversee all communications committees (bulletin boards, family directory, e-newsletter, marquee, web site, and serve as the chief liaison between these committees and the Executive Board, and serve as the chief liaison between the room parents and the Executive and General Board. – Time commitment: about 3–5 hours week

To express interest, please contact Toni Emehel at 704.504.3757 or via email at toni@nextlevelplus.org.

Ms. Maggie Talks About Montessori with 'Good Day' PRM’s own Ms. Maggie, longtime Primary teacher and Montessori advocate, talks to ‘Good Day’ about Montessori education. She is a finalist for the CMS Teacher of the Year award. Check out the video link above!
Standing Up For Montessori Teachers Parents within the Charlotte Montessori community are petitioning the North Carolina State Board of Education and the Department of Public Instruction to recognize Montessori teacher education program credits toward licensure. The goal is to keep credentialed Montessori teachers in the classroom and in our schools, ensuring that our Montessori public programs are authentic and staffed by Montessori credentialed teachers; and, this change would save tax payer dollars.
