Congratulations Mrs. Koch!
After receiving more than 800 nominations for the Teacher Appreciation Week contest, the Wake County Schools “Thank You Squad” selected Mrs. Koch to receive a surprise visit at school, where they delivered balloons and gifts!
Thank you Mrs. Koch for going above and beyond to invest in our children. The exposure to the arts you provide, including music, drama and technical production, provides PRE children with opportunities they may have never received. We appreciate you and are so lucky to have you as a Panda.

Penny's Beach Blast was a HUGE success!
Thank you to everyone who came out to support PRE's annual Spring Carnival. Penny's Beach Blast was a whole lot of fun and a huge success. It raised over $26,000 for the school! We would like to say a special thank you to the Carnival Team: Amy Toland, Barbara Wright, Kimberly Hartmere, Laurie Cockman, Lindsay Tremelling, Lisa Brandon, Monica McBride, & Sherri Stecher. They put in so many long hours to organize this great event. Also, we'd like to thank the volunteers that helped the week of carnival; your time and creativity helped make this year's carnival a huge hit. And last but certainly not least, we greatly appreciate all the PRE families that came out to support Penny's Beach Blast!
