PRM Named a National Magnet School of Excellence!
MSA’s National Merit Awards program honors the top magnet schools in the United States. These awards recognize magnet schools that demonstrate commitment to high academic standards, curriculum innovation, successful desegregation and diversity efforts, and consistent delivery of high quality educational services to all stakeholders.
MSA established two categories of awards:
Magnet School of Excellence Awards are given to only a select group of magnet schools that have demonstrated the highest level of excellence in all facets of the merit award application.
Magnet School of Distinction Awards are the second level of awards given to magnet schools that have met all the basic requirements outlined in the merit awards scoring rubric.
All schools that apply for merit awards must be current members of Magnet School of America and are required to submit an application that is scored by a panel of educators. Magnet schools that are the highest ranked in the “excellence category” are eligible to receive monetary awards and the chance to be named the nation’s top Elementary, Secondary or New & Emerging Magnet School. One of the schools of excellence will be selected to win $5,000 – which is attached to the Dr. Ronald P. Simpson Distinguished Merit Award, considered the most prestigious merit award

Windsor Park Food Pantry Donation Drive
Join PRM Cares in supporting the food pantry at Windsor Park Elementary! We are kicking off our February donation drive early. To make it fun for all, Ms. Cecelia’s class is making this into a SOUPER BOWL contest. There will be team signs in the collection area outside the office. When you bring in your food donations (they can be soup or any other canned or non-perishable items), place them in the bin under the sign for your pick to win the Super Bowl!
Windsor Park Elementary is a Title I school with a 100% poverty level. This year, a parent turned a storage closet into a free food pantry for students after learning from the principal and teachers how many students were hungry during the school day. After the holidays, their stock is low. Let’s help them fill the shelves for the SOUPER BOWL! You can learn more about the Windsor Park Elementary food pantry here.
