We also have lots of small tees for our newest PRM members that missed beginners day in the spring! Sizes and styles will be limited in order to sell down our current inventory to make space for a new offering once we’re back in school. Orders will be available for pick up at the school a few weeks after the order is placed. The spiritwear volunteers will email you details about picking up your order once it’s ready.
- Review the updated A/B rotation calendar for elementary to familiarize yourself with your child’s school days for Plan B.
- Prepare your child for mask wearing using the resource provided in this bulletin.
- Complete the transportation information form that was emailed earlier this week. We need this information on every child who will be coming in person.
- If your child is going to be a bus rider, please sign up to receive updates from the school about late buses and substitutions by sending a text message to the number 81010 with the message @prmbusa or @prmbusb depending on your child’s A/B rotation.
We appreciate your continued support and can’t wait to greet our students in a few weeks!!
- Try different masks to find ones that work best. After washing masks, have your child try them on while talking, yawning, laughing, walking or jumping around to see which masks stay on best.
- Wear a mask yourself too, while they practice. Model good behavior and a positive attitude about mask wearing.
- Reinforce how to wear it. Your child’s mask should cover their nose and mouth at all times. Practice not touching your face or mask except to remove it after washing your hands.
- Follow a schedule to increase your child’s comfort and length of time they spend in a mask.
- Start with easy activities (reading, watching TV) and slowly increase your child’s level of activity (schoolwork, talking, focused work, etc) while in a mask.

October brings cooler weather, beauty in nature, and celebration. National Hispanic Heritage month occurs from September 15-October 15. And of course, Halloween, Day of the Dead, and fall festivals are fast approaching for those who choose to participate in these festivities. While there are many fun and exciting activities in October, we are also grappling with more difficult issues as a global society. The effects and additional stressors brought on by COVID-19 and facing difficult realities around social injustice issues continue to occupy our hearts and thoughts. With this in mind, we compiled a few resources that we hope can assist you with some of these October challenges.
For stress related issues, click this link. There are numerous hyperlinks within the article, so it truly is one-stop shopping for all things stress related.
This article provides instruction to guide children through a beautiful ritual to honor loved ones who have died from COVID-19 infection or other causes.
Access this free printable to recognize National Hispanic Heritage month and support our new social/emotional learning program, Caring Schools. During the week of September 29-October 2, we focus on cultivating happiness. Children will design a sun using inspiration from Google images of Mexican folk art. For the spokes of their sun, invite them to create images or words of things that they associate with happiness.
How do we begin to talk to our children about the complexities of social injustice? It helps to start with identifying where we are in our own thinking around this topic.
