New Playground Equipment Being Installed!
We would like to invite all PRES families to join us on the playground on Monday, December 17th at 3:30-4:00 pm for a Playground Ribbon Cutting, hosted by the PTA. We will have light refreshments, a brief ribbon cutting ceremony, and time for children to play on the new equipment!
The red frame will be removed and the blue swing will be reinstalled next to the other swings.
The first piece of equipment, the Nautilus obstacle course, began to take shape on Monday, December 10, 2018.
By Wednesday, December 12, 2018, the second piece of equipment, the Flux Capacitor, began to be installed.
PRES C.A.R.E. is Looking for a Slogan
Our CARES committee is continually developing our character education program here at PRES. Many of our CARES committee members are also represented on the BCSD district-wide character education committee. One of the District's priorities this year is to develop consistency in the character education programs across buildings, while still preserving the unique, home-grown culture developed within each school.
The PRES character education program, C.A.R.E., is looking for a slogan to match our thriving character education program. Building on our values of cooperation, accountability, respect and effort, we are inviting all school community members (students, staff, and parents) to help us select a school slogan that best represents our CARES program here at PRES.
This is the easiest survey you will ever take… there is only ONE QUESTION! Please click on the link below (with your child) and vote for your favorite PRES CARES slogan. The choices listed in the survey were developed by our CARES committee. Please complete the survey by Friday, December 21st.

Picking up Early from School
Please remember that our cut-off time for daily dismissal changes is 1:00 PM. No changes can be made after 1:00 PM, unless it is an emergency. Informing us of your child's dismissal plans before this cut-off time helps us to ensure that the message is accurately communicated to your child and child's teacher. Communicating dismissal changes early in the day help us to ensure the safety of all children.
