Many of you are familiar with the longstanding PRM tradition of Winter Village. We will not hold a school wide Winter Village in person this year but each classroom will observe the tradition in some way in the weeks before winter break. Please look for communication from your child’s teacher about Winter Village plans.
Attention ALL PRM Families! The Autobell Gift Card sale is ON! This is our ONE large fundraiser that will offset the cost of Mountain Trail Outdoor School (MTOS). The MTOS trip is a fundamental part of the Upper Elementary experience at Park Road Montessori School, and we could use your family’s help. Even if your child is not in Upper El, you can order gift cards for the holiday season! They make wonderful gifts for coworkers and neighbors!
You can order cards directly and pay from (this link —https://parkroadmontessori.
If any Upper Elementary families would prefer to contribute directly to the fundraiser instead of selling gift cards, we welcome that as well! You can do that here (link to paypal button again) or you may drop a check in the PTO dropbox by the front office (making sure to include your child’s name and MTOS in the memo).
Thank you for your support of this fundraiser for our students!
PRM Cares is asking for donations to help with “Cats United,” an event with the Carolina Panthers and Girl Scout Troop 219 to support the students and families at Windsor Park Elementary. In order to fill 518 stockings (one for each student at Windsor Park), they are still in need of several donations! Please visit their Amazon Wish List to purchase items, and they will be sent directly to the donation collection site. Windsor Park is a local Title I school with 98% of the population being low SES and 70% being second language learners.
They are also looking for a company willing to donate a balloon arch. If you or someone you know can help, please email Allie Kaul at email@example.com.

The 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!
