Book Fair Committee Members Needed

We are looking for a few parents to join the committee to help run the Book Fair from October 17th-25th, 2018.  There will be weekend and evening events during this time, as well as a Bake Sale and an All for Books fundraiser.

If you are able to donate your time and efforts, please contact Wendy Egan or Deann Grogan.  

Please note:   A SignUp Genius will be sent out in October for volunteers to help during the Book Fair – set up and tear down, cashier, browsing, bake sale items, etc.

Thank you!

Library Volunteers Needed

We are looking for parents to volunteer in the school library.  We need help to shelve books and work on small projects.  If you are able to donate a few hours of your time in the library each month, please contact Amy Kimble  or Deann Grogan .  Thank you!
Support the PTA at Home

You can contribute to the PRES PTA just by doing the same things you do every day!  Did you know that if you start your shopping at instead, and select POUND RIDGE ELEM PTA, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases?!

And don't forget to keep clipping those Box Tops for Education! Each Box Top submitted raises $.10 for PRES. You can find them on many products you bring home from the store. Simply clip them, put them in a baggie, and return them to PRES twice a year, when instructed.  Couldn’t be easier!
