Big Announcement!! PRES PTA is now on Facebook!!

We are so excited to announce that we have created a Facebook page for the PRES PTA. 

This page will be for news and announcements ONLY, no photos of students will be posted. 

Not on Facebook? Not to worry - all the information that will be posted on the Facebook page will still be included in e-blasts and this weekly newsletter. 

Click here to find us on Facebook. You could also search for our group under "Pound Ridge Elementary School PTA". Before being granted admission to the group, you will be asked to verify the name and grade of your child(ren)/student(s) at PRES. 

We hope this will be a great new way to spread the word about all of the things our PTA is working on to make this another great year at PRES! Email with questions.
