Picture Retakes

School pictures were sent home via back pack mail last week. Cassiday Studios will be at PRES on Wednesday, November 28th for picture retakes. If your child was absent on picture day or you are not satisfied with their photo, please email Christine Labov with your child’s name, teacher and reason for the retake so that they can be added to the reshoot list.
Holiday Sharing Drive 

We have had an amazing response to our Holiday Sharing Drive so far!! Each grade has items still available, click on the following links to access your child's grade list:  Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, Third Grade, Fourth Grade, and Fifth Grade

**Please note** -  donated items should be NEW, with tags still on. Donations should also be labeled with the code for your grade's family and description of the item. 

Starting WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28th, there will be labeled bins at PRES for your family's donations. We encourage you to clearly label your donation with your name, grade, item description, and family code (located on the top of the sign up page), and send them in with your child in their backpack. 

If you are donating a large item that is not able to be transported in a backpack, OR if you are donating a big ticket item, we will arrange donation separately. Large items can be shipped directly to our Junior League representative, or dropped off at her house at your convenience. Email to arrange donation.
