Sweetheart Dance

We are so excited for the Sweetheart Dance next Friday, February 1 from 6-8 PM in the PRES Gym!!  If you have purchased tickets, we will check you in with a list at the door. NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR. 

Pizza and water will be provided, coffee and treats will be available for purchase. We will also have an awesome raffle and other small items for sale. CASH ONLY please!

At the Dance we will be making Valentine cards for our local seniors for Project Pound Ridge Cupid. Please try to make at least one card while you are there, it means so much to the Seniors in our community!  Click here to see more ways that you and your family can brighten Valentine's Day this year for our local seniors by baking, making cards, packaging or delivering items around town. 

Please remember this is a grown-up/child party, for PRES students only.  This is not a drop-off event, and we ask that you only attend with your child(ren) that are current PRES students. Thank you for your understanding - it's going to be a very fun night! Email with any questions.
