Be a Part of the Memorial Day Parade!

How would you like 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 Monday, May 13th.

PRES Art Show 
Thursday, May 16th is the PRES Art Show!  The Art Show is a great time for PRES kids to show their families and friends all the beautiful and creative art they have been working on all year in art class. Above is a sample of Second Grade art work.

Courtyard Update 

Thanks to the very generous donation from the Pound Ridge Car Show, and the hard work done by Milton's Home, Garden and Patio over the break, our PRES courtyard has gotten a beautiful face lift! We are so grateful that the students now have an amazing outdoor learning space to use as the weather improves!
