The PTA appreciates your continued support of arts and science enrichment programs at PRES, each plant sold directly contributes to program funding.

LAST CHANCE - Be a Part of the Memorial Day Parade!

Last chance to create a float that represents PRES in this year's Pound Ridge Memorial Day parade! We are looking for PRES students and family members to create floats and pull them while marching in the town's Memorial Day Parade, Monday, May 27th.  

Floats should be able to fit easily on a wagon and can be pulled by a student or family member. Themes can range from PRES CAREs to PRES’ 80th Birthday, use your imagination! If you would like to participate, please send your name and a general description of your float idea to by today.

This year, weeding our memorial rock garden and adding bushes and plants to the newly updated PRES Courtyard is one of the projects on the Pound Ridge Partnership's list, and we/they would love to have PRES Volunteers to help out!
