who we are

Pound Ridge Elementary School (PRES) PTA strives to enrich the education of PRES students, foster school and community spirit and build strong partnerships between teachers and parents – and this doesn’t happen without member participation!


PRES PTA provides many programs to enrich our children’s educational experience. We fund many classroom and school-wide arts and science programs, such as visiting artists, hatching chicks, and an in-school planetarium.  We also offer after-school enrichment (PRIDE), ranging from printmaking, to computer programming to cooking class. 

By joining the PTA, your membership dues help fund many programs and events that the PTA organizes throughout the school year,you become eligible to vote on PTA resolutions, and your student is able to participate in PRIDE.
