    Friday, June 29th, members of the summer community of PRM gathered to recognize the amazing service of Angela Sandidge for 35 years with CPS, 30 of those years with Pleasant Ridge as a custodian!  She was surprised and moved by the recognition and shared stories with those who came as others shared their stories as well.  She could write a book about it, to which we all replied, we would love to read it!  We thank you for your service and wish you all the best in your retirement!

    PRM: A Thank you from a parent!

    “I just want to say a HUGE thank you to the PRM staff, students, and parents for making this an amazing year for these girls! Natalie tends to have a lot of difficulty with changes in her routine so moving her to a new city and a new school for 5th grade was a bit scary. PRM really lived up to its reputation as a school that truly values community and diversity in education. Less than 2 weeks into summer break and Natalie asked this morning to go back to school (she also misses Ms Michelle). Mari also had a terrific Kindergarten year. Thank you PRM ❤️” Jeanne Hall ~ PRM…
