Autobell Gift Cards Available Salt, Pollen and Dirt! Oh My! We know a lot of families have missed our Upper El AutoBell fundraiser so we are offering a limited amount of cards.

Buy a $20 Autobell gift card to use for your choice of wash at any of the 55 Autobell locations. PRM receives 50% of the purchase price, and the PTO will send the gift card via mail to the address you provide when purchased. This is an excellent way to support our local businesses and our school community!

PRM Cares: Supporting Students at Windsor Park Please join us in supporting Windsor Park Elementary. Students need donations of new or gently used iPad chargers, screen protectors, mini white boards, and a few other items as they continue to learn remotely on some or all days of the week.

You can drop off items in the PRM carpool line if you are attending in person, or you can have items delivered to the address in the SignUp Genius. Signup and find out more information here.

New Office Hours for Counselors Office hours for our PRM counselors have changed with the return to Plan B. Ms. Betsy and Ms. Kae are available on Wednesdays from 2:30-3:30 PM. They can be reached by clicking on the button with their name on your child’s Canvas page.
