School Garden

Last Friday, the Kelley family’s Belgian horses — Kim and Belle — arrived to turn the soil using an old-fashioned tiller.  Thank you to all the parent and children volunteers who  helped.  Thanks to Tristan Kelley for donation of manure and horse power.

   Today, P/1 and 2/3 students planted beans, sunflowers, nastrumsiums and cosmos, etc.   The Grade 2/3 class enjoyed a veggie salad made with fresh lettuce from the garden today. 

   Next time you are at PRES, take a look at the work the students have done in the greenhouse and garden.  Please note, we are still looking for parent and/or community volunteers to help us maintain the garden over the summer.  If interested, please send a note to the school with your child or give us a call.

What a Wonderful Spring Fair!

    The hardworking Home & School Association and friends pulled off another spectacular Spring Fair this year, raising more than $6,000.  The many hours spent planning, organizing, seeking donations; and then bringing it all together for the grand finale is truly appreciated by all of us at PRES. 

     The success of our Spring Fair is also due to the combined efforts of parents, staff, students and community members who work together to provide “the extras” for PRES students.  Last, but not least, we could not have done it without the donations we have received from local artists, businesses and organizations.  Thank you for sharing your artwork, donations, time and talents!

The funds raised will be used for the 2015-2016 school year’s extracurricular activities and special events such as musical and stage performances, skating trips, class trips, gymnastics, etc. 

The PRES Spring Fair is not only a fantastic fundraiser, but also a celebrated community event.  It was heartwarming to see so many people enjoying the company of their neighbours, the local musical talent and the delicious lobster sandwiches.  It was so nice to visit with you and hope to see you again next year!
