    Open House 2019!

    Monday night, August 12th, students, staff and their families poured into the building filling it to the seams to prepare for the 2019-2020 school year.

The Free uniform exchange table overflowed and had enough left over to donate to another school that needed them. Folks bought spirit wear,…

    To Space and Beyond: PRM Girl Scouts

    On Wednesday, July 17th, many of PRM’s girl scouts were inspired by Cincinnati Public School’s very own Chief Communications and Engagement Officer, Lauren Worley.  Before working for Cincinnati Public Schools, Lauren Worley was press Secretary and Senior Advisor at NASA, an appointee of the Obama Administration.  Her rich experience at NASA gave her the ability to inspire the girls to think of who they want to be.  She herself was a girl scout for many years!  The French Park Girl Scout camp, which serves girls scouts throughout the area, had a space theme this year: to French Park and Beyond. She spoke amid the mixing swirl of sun, rain and…

    PRM Flamingo Fundraiser!

    UPDATE: Flocking is closed for the season!  The flamingos have decided the nights are too cold and have migrated south! Looking to build school spirit over the summer? Help raise funds for the school? Or maybe just prank a friend? We have flocks of flamingos descending on the PRM community! Surprise someone you know by sending a flock of flamingos to their front lawn! The flamingos typically roost for a couple of days before moving on to the next lawn. Flamingos prefer the climate in Pleasant Ridge and the surrounding neighborhoods so unfortunately flocks can’t migrate farther. Find a flock in your yard? Re-home the flock by completing the form…
