Welcome Back!

Dear PRES Families:

The PRES PTO would like to welcome you to a new year at our school. For those of you who are unfamiliar with us, we are a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the  successful education of our children. The PRES PTO works hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents.

We are here to help students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs; to promote open communication between administration, teachers, and parents/guardians and to encourage PRES school spirit and pride. The PTO uses its resources, both manpower and monetary, to support the efforts of the staff and to provide learning and enrichment opportunities for our children.

We are looking forward to meeting families, parents/guardians, and grandparents that would like to get involved with our PTO this school year. Everything we do is based on volunteers and we are looking to you to help make a difference in the lives of our children. Every parent/guardian is already a member of the PTO and we encourage you get involved! Volunteer your time. Donate what you can. Everyone is busy, but finding a little time to help contribute to your child’s educational experience will be rewarding for you and for them. It’s a wonderful investment that will produce lasting benefits. If you are able to give some time, day or evenings, at school or from home, please join us! Many hands make the job easier. Every hour helps!

Help us make the 2018-19 a great school year! We will need as many volunteers as possible, and are flexible enough to work around your schedule. We in the PTO believe that it is so important that we all do everything we can to enhance the learning environment of our children as they truly are our future. It will take all of us working together to make this happen. We hope you will share your thoughts and ideas and help make this a wonderful year at PRES!

We look forward to seeing you at school, meetings, events, and fundraisers. We look forward to getting to know you!
