We are looking for parents to volunteer in the school library for a few hours each month.  We need help to shelve books and work on small projects.  If you would like to be involved in the library, please contact Joanne Mineo or Deann Grogan .  Thank you!

Picture Day

PRES Picture Day is scheduled for Friday, October 4th! Order forms were sent home via back pack mail this week. If you’d like to place an order, please return the picture money envelope to your child’s classroom teacher by Friday, September 27th. Any questions, contact Christine Labov.

Thank you!
Indoor Recess Cart Donations

When rainy weather hits, the Indoor Recess Carts come out! The PTA is looking for donations of gently used games that the students could play during indoor recess. Ideas include small cornhole sets, board games, or any games without too many small parts or pieces that could get lost. Email us if you would like to donate.  Please ensure your donations have all the required pieces before sending them in, thank you!
