Treats for Troops - Donate some candy: November 1st-2nd

We are excited to announce that this year, PRES will be participating in the Treats for Troops program! Please save some of your leftover Halloween candy and drop it off in the bin right inside the front entrance of the school on November 1st and 2nd, just after Halloween. We will bring the candy to the Treats for Troops location, who will ship our donated candy to deployed service members around the world or distribute to veterans in VA Hospitals across the country. 

Stay tuned for more community service opportunities each month to help our students to strengthen their sense of empathy and kindness towards others. 
Fifth Grade Pancake Breakfast and Raffle: November 3rd
Join us for the 5th grade pancake breakfast on Saturday, November 3, 8am-12pm. All proceeds will help fund 5th grade activities. See the flyer here.

You do not need to be present to win, so this form can be passed along to friends and family who want to take a chance to win! Even if you'll be at pancake breakfast, you can pre-order your tickets and they'll be submitted for your chosen items ahead of time, so you don't have to fill out any tickets on the big day here
. As always, there will be a great raffle at the breakfast and tickets can be ordered now.  A list of items and a raffle ticket pre-order form are available
This year there will also be a silent auction. Silent auction items are listed here and will only be available for bidding at the event.  If you see something you love, but won't be present when bidding closes, be sure to ask a friend to bid for you.

If you have any questions at all, please contact Toni Dooley.
PTA Senior Luncheon: November 8th

Please help us celebrate the seniors in our town by providing them with a fun filled lunch on November 8th, 10:30am-3:00pm in the PRES music room!  Cooked items, paper goods and services are needed and appreciated!
