Book Fair Runs through Friday; Online Shopping Til OCT. 20!

Excitement is in the air in the Media Center as we are half way through our fall book fair. The in-person fair will continue through Friday, but online shopping is available through Oct. 20

– To be in compliance with CMS guidelines, in person shopping is restricted to students only

– Every class will have a scheduled shopping time that coincides with their regularly scheduled Media Class time.

– Additional shopping times for small groups will be designated in the mornings or during daily scheduled lunch and recess times at each teacher’s discretion. 

This year, the teachers have not made wish lists as they typically would. Instead, if you would like to help build your student’s classroom library, please consider sending your teacher an eGift card to use at the fair. Go to http://www.scholastic.com/fair, find our school, scroll down and there are two online shopping options (Shop the Store and Shop the Virtual Fair). Once you click one of these, an “eGift cards” link is listed on the left side. You can select an amount to send to your teacher, who can use the eGift card to shop at the in-person store in the media center Oct 11 – 15 or in the online store Oct 7 – 20. Or go directly to the eGift card page here.  

We strongly encourage families to use the eWallet option that is now available. This will reduce the amount of cash that your student needs to keep track of and that our volunteers need to handle. Sign up for the eWallet here!

You can get an early look at what will be available by checking out the online flyer.

Your time and purchases will help keep our Media Center full of great materials for our students. All proceeds from the Book Fair are given directly to the Media Center. Questions? Please contact Jodie Lowe at jodie.chester.lowe@gmail.com. 

Thank You! Thank you to everyone who participated in the Invest In Your Child Campaign. We raised over $31,000 thanks to the generosity of our amazing Park Road families. The donated funds will be divided among the classrooms, including allocations to our specials teachers. These funds will allow our dedicated teachers to purchase new tools for their classrooms, which will directly benefit all of our children. Thanks again for all of your continued support of our wonderful school community!  

CARPOOL RAFFLEHave you ever calculated how many hours a week you spend sitting in a carpool line? Well, DON’T miss your chance to pass go and move straight to the front of the line!

How, you ask? Well, there are two different opportunities to make you carpool line dreams come true!

Ms. Christy’s Upper El class is holding their annual fundraiser each quarter this year, which provides you the opportunity to win reserved spaces at the front of the car rider line. There are four available spots and two ways to win!

  • Two spaces will be awarded through a raffle system. Raffle tickets will go on sale, Monday, October 11, 2021 through Friday, October 22, 2021. Raffle tickets are $1 each but are sold in increments of $5. This means you will have at least 5 tickets in the drawing to win that spot! The winners of these two spots will be drawn on Tuesday, October 26th and will be notified. To purchase your raffle tickets please visit our website.  Make sure to include your child’s name, his/her teacher’s name, and phone number with your purchase.
  • Want to play the odds? Then join the SILENT AUCTION on Tuesday, October 19th from 6:30-7:30 pm, in order for a chance to win the other two spots! CLICK THIS LINK TO BID ON OCTOBER 19TH. To participate in the online auction you will need to create an account in advance (it only takes two minutes, we promise). Enjoy the fun and keep an eye on our auction website, where you will be able to see the bids live. You can win by outbidding the highest bid on the site.

If you are a raffle or silent auction winner, you simply arrive before 4:00 pm, pull right up to the designated front spots and wait (much, much!) shorter time for your child (ren). You will enjoy your parking spot from November 1- January 21st. Spaces for this fundraiser are limited so hurry and get your online bids in or raffle tickets now.

If you aren’t one of the lucky four winners for second quarter, don’t worry you will have two more chances this school year! Stay tuned for more information to come at the end of the 2nd Quarter.

Let Me Run Returns to PRM This Fall Let Me Run is a running program for 4th – 6th  grade boys, but it’s more about the boy than the run.

To counteract the negative pressures society places on boys, our program uses running as the vehicle to inspire, teach, and reach them. Combining exercise with fun activities and lessons, our trained coaches inspire boys to be courageous enough to be themselves, build healthy relationships, and live an active lifestyle.

Registration is now open! The fall season starts on October 19th, meets Tuesdays and Thursdays 4:15-5:30, and ends with a 5k race on December 11th.

Register today or learn more at LetMeRun.org

Questions? Contact Erin Romeiser (erinr@letmerun.org) or Coach Kyle Jones (kbjones72@gmail.com)

Lets Keep the Cart StockedThe snack cart for PRM staff has been a great success and a small way to show our big appreciation! We want to keep the cart of treats and snacks in the hallway (where staff checks in each morning) fully stocked for our “Thankful Thursdays” each week and we need your help! We’ve updated this wish list for ideas and inspiration, but you can also send any grocery store items (especially fresh fruit options and beverages). The only requirements are that items are individually wrapped, store-bought and don’t require refrigeration. Please direct any questions to Julie Smith. Thank you for helping us show our amazing PRM staff lots of LOVE!
