Park Road Montessori


Mark your calendars for Tuesday, March 28th! We have an exciting night of family music fun planned, starting with a short performance from our Upper El chorus, Vivace, at 5:30 pm. We will then transition to the gym for Family Drum Night with the amazing Dancing Drum.Join us as parents and guardians, grandparents, siblings, and students come together for an evening of fun on the drums! With Dancing Drum’s expert guidance, everyone can learn how to play together through listening, cooperation, respecting, and working together as a team. Bring the whole family, a couple of lawn chairs, and be ready to discover that everyone has a rhythm to share!

Come share your Country/ Culture at the 14th International Spring Picnic on Thursday May 4th from 5-7 pm. We are inviting PRM parents to join in the unique celebration of our diversity. It is a beautiful, colorful, lively evening of parents and children displaying their country/culture in their own special unique way on a table in the field. This is an amazing experience, and so valuable to our students and families. Hosting a booth is fun and easy, just bring items of cultural interest, books, maps, flags, music, recipes anything to expose our children to your beautiful culture.

It’s easy and fun. Here are some ideas to help: just bring a few items like clothing, a favorite dish, books or some pictures and we’ll provide the rest! Sign up here to share a country or culture and/or contact Priti Aery with any questions. It’s a beautiful experience and so valuable to our students and families! Please consider sharing your culture with us!


A Message from Ms. Melanie about Cell Phones and Personal Technology Devices

Parents, We are seeing an increase in phones and other devices being used by children during school. As a reminder, cell phones, smart watches, and any other internet accessing devices must be turned off and put away during school hours. If your child brings a device to school, please make sure they understand this. Page 8 of the Student Rights, Responsibilities and Character Development Handbook on the CMS website also explains the policy as well as how violations may be handled. Thanks for your support in keeping our school free from these types of distractions!


As we start the second half of the school year, please remember how important your child’s daily attendance is. Please email your child’s teacher and copy Ms. Laura each time he/she is known to be ill or out of school for any reason. Only letting the teacher know about absences via texts/apps is not acceptable. If you need support with your child’s attendance, please reach out to your child’s classroom counselor Ms. Kae or Ms Gabrielle.
