The PRES school community enjoyed celebrating the school's 80th birthday with a wonderful school-wide assembly. We began with opening remarks, telling the story of how PRES began. We watched an incredible video of oral histories from PRES past and present. Students participated in an interactive trivia game testing their knowledge of what life was like in 1939. Mrs. Donnavan, our music teacher, led the school in singing Play For Me a Simple Melody and Happy Birthday, PRES. The staff PRES band performed live the Beatles song, Birthday! The celebration culminated with our mascot, Wonder Wolf, popping out of a birthday cake, followed by balloons dropping from the ceiling. We had approximately 30 special guests, including members of Pound Ridge community, Pound Ridge Historical Society, PTA, BCSD administrators, BCSD Board of Education members, and previous PRES students and staff. It was a truly memorable event!
