A Reminder From PRE Administration

Parents and guardians, if you are checking your student out for the day please remember the last time to do that is 3:00 PM. This time frame ensures that the front parking lot and car pool loop are ready for afternoon car pool. Thank you for helping make sure that we keep carpool running smoothly and safely for our students and staff.

Fun Run 2019

The Fun Run was a big success! The kids has a blast trying to run as many laps as they possibly could. Thanks to all our families for your support over the last two weeks. We are happy to report we met our goal of $25,000. That money will go back to our school for new technology, curriculum support and playground equipment. We couldn't have done it without the support of our Penny Road Families!!


This year we are planning a very special Veterans Day assembly and we'd like to invite PRE family veterans and those involved in active military to join us. We will have reserved seating for these guests and would like to honor them during the assembly. If you have someone in your family that can join us the morning of November 7th (assemblies are at 9:30am & 10:15am), please e-mail Stephanie Hall ( by October 28th with their name, military branch, and title. Also, we will have a slideshow this year with photos of any active military and veteran family members (alive or deceased) from our PRE community. Please send your photos with their name and any known military information to Stephanie Hall by October 28th for inclusion in this special honorary tribute. Thank you!


There will be 2 ways to involve your children and give back for Veterans Day this year!

1. Thank you letters to veterans or active troops: You can make your own card or letter thanking our service men & women. For tips on writing a thank you letter please visit

2. Candy Collection for NCPacks4Patriots: Please donate any extra unopened Halloween candy to NCPacks4Patriots! You can bring your candy to school and drop it off in the donation box in the lobby from November 4th-7th. The candy will be sent in care packages sent out to troops and their family members.
