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.

Spirit Wear Pop-Up Store Thank you to everyone who purchased spirit wear this fall! Proceeds help fund PTO activities like Teacher Appreciation and Field Day, so we really appreciate your support. A few extra items are available for sale in our Spirit Wear Pop-Up Store, located outside the office, while supplies last. Come get t-shirts, water bottles, sweatshirts and magnets! Purchases are on the honor system – please put check or cash only in an envelope labeled spirit wear, and deposit into the PTO drop box. Checks can be made out to PRM PTO. Next spirit wear group order coming in November, stay tuned!
California Pizza Kitchen Spirit Night - December 12thIn December our spirit night will be at California Pizza Kitchen, located at 4400 Sharon Road (Southpark Mall). Any orders placed between 11AM and 9PM will count for a donation back to our school. Please mention you are with Park Road Montessori while ordering, and California Pizza Kitchen will donate 20% of proceeds to PRM!
Small Fundraisers Make a Big Difference! Please remember to link your Harris Teeter VIC card to PRM in store or online. Even if you have previously linked your card, this must be done every school year.

Box Tops is now digital! The Box Tops clips are currently being phased out. We can now use the Box Tops app to scan a store receipt to find participating products. The app will automatically credit PRM’s account online. Be sure to scan your receipt within 14 days of purchase to earn credit. In the meantime, we are still collecting Box Tops clips from packages until they expire, so continue to drop those off in the main lobby.
