Sweetheart Dance

We are so excited for the Sweetheart Dance TONIGHT!  If you have purchased tickets, we will check you in with a list at the door. NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR. 

Pizza and water will be provided, coffee and treats will be available for purchase. We will also have an awesome raffle and other small items for sale. CASH ONLY please!

At the Dance we will be making Valentine cards for our local seniors for Project Pound Ridge Cupid. Please try to make at least one card while you are there, it means so much to the Seniors in our community!  Click here to see more ways that you and your family can brighten Valentine's Day this year for our local seniors by baking, making cards, packaging or delivering items around town. 

Please remember this is a grown-up/child party, for PRES students only.  This is not a drop-off event, and we ask that you only attend with your child(ren) that are current PRES students. Thank you for your understanding - it's going to be a very fun night! Email with any questions. 
Cabaret 2019

On Thursday, February 7 at 6 PM in the PRES gym, our talented fellow students will be performing in this year’s cabaret show.  We have dancers, singers, actors, joke tellers and musicians. It will be an awesome show!
Please come and support your friends. The 4th grade class will be offering pizza, doughnuts and drinks for sale before the show and during intermission.
