Winter Village Coming Soon!Our special Winter Village event is coming up on Thursday, December 19th. Returning families know it’s an evening not to miss! The chorus and band will kick off the evening with a performance at 5:30 p.m. in the auditorium. 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 child’s teacher or room parent.

Remember, allow plenty of time for parking. Space will be available at St. Ann’s. Please do not block our neighbors’ driveways. Also, seating in the auditorium is limited. Please consider having small children sit in a parent’s lap and be sure to check out the info below on reserved seating!

Reserve Your Seat for Winter VillageAre you a fan of standing in the waaaay back or showing up really early to get a good spot for an event in the PRM auditorium? No, you aren’t? Well, we have an idea for you!  Support Ms. Christie’s Upper El 6th grade field trip by purchasing your very own RESERVED seat for this very special night. YES! Are you a new PRM family? Take it from us – having a seat for this performance is COVETED!

For just $20/seat, you can relax and enjoy the evening with your friends and family. Don’t worry about getting there early or being separated from your loved ones because you can now buy the seats you need. We will have your special spots labeled and ready for you to enjoy that evening.

We only have 30 seats available for this special fundraiser, so hurry and reserve your seats here! Deadline for reserving seats is 5PM on Dec 18th. Questions? Email Stacy Dugan.

Why We Sell Autobell Gift CardsEach year, our Upper El Students sell Autobell gift cards to help pay for their overnight field trip to MTOS (Mountain Trail Outdoor Leadership School) in Hendersonville, NC. The majority of the trip is covered by family fees, but we supplement the fees through this fundraiser to ensure every child is able to attend this community-building trip.

We need your help! Ask any Upper El student for tickets. For every $20 gift card sold, $10 comes back to our school. Thanks for supporting our school’s unique curriculum.
