Welcome Back!

The PTA Executive Board would like to welcome everyone to, or back to school at PRES!  We are very excited for the coming year and all it has to offer. We have many events and opportunities in mind to bring our community together this year, starting with our all-school Ice Cream Social on Friday, September 14th, from 5-6:30pm. Hope to see you there! Stay tuned for other upcoming opportunities to get involved with both the PTA and the PRES community inside and out of school.  It's going to be a great year!

And don't forget to keep clipping those Box Tops for Education! Each Box Top submitted raises $.10 for PRES. You can find them on many products you bring home from the store. Simply clip them, put them in a baggie, and return them to PRES twice a year, when instructed.  Couldn’t be easier!
