Million Fathers March

On Monday, August 19th, the 2019-2020 school year began with bursting energy as Fathers and caregivers lined the PRM sidewalk into school to greet and encourage the students of PRM.  The excitement and energy was so palpable, it reached from face to face across the crowd like the light streaming through the trees.  Some students ran to the door with great anticipation giving high fives and laughter spilled out! Some walked timidly to the door and the hand shakes and calming hands on shoulders silently melted them and smiles filtered out. Some hurriedly walked through and giggled once they got to the door. No silence here at PRM, no echoing of fear, but welcoming to a place of excitement and learning.  What a way to start the year!  Thank you to Ms. Simpson and Ms. Stegman and all the amazing Fathers and Men who came today to build up the students of Pleasant Ridge Montessori School.
