Celebrate Great Falls Golf Tournament - May 14th


Celebrate Great Falls will hold its annual Golf Tournament on May 14th. Sign up today for a wonderful day of golf at the beautiful Hidden Creek Country Club in Reston. The event will include a 4-person scramble, dinner and awards reception following play.


Tee time is 1:30 p.m. with a shotgun start.


All proceeds go to Colvin Run ES, Forestville ES, and Great Falls ES.  Last year alone the Tournament and Auction raised $25,500 and CRES received $8,500 to put toward much-needed improvements.  But we can't do it without our CRES families' support! For more information, please contact Lisa Cuomo at lisac0903@gmail.com or 703-967-4629.

Volunteer at CRES

We'll have lots of fun ways to get involved at CRES this year - watch this space for more information as volunteer opportunities become available.


Family Fitness Day Volunteers - We still need lots of volunteers to help set up, pass out water and snacks, guide hikers and act as race marshalls. (Great opportunity to get those 8th grade service hours!) If you'd like to help, sign up here.


Food Rescue Volunteers - Just a 12-minute drive from CRES, the Cornerstones Emergency Self-Sufficiency Services program helps fight hunger right here in Northern Virginia. Each day at lunch, CRES students collect leftover, unopened food and beverages from lunch to donate.

We need parent volunteers to deliver the rescued food every Tuesday and Thursday through the end of the school year. Unfortunately, a small number of volunteers has been shouldering much of the delivery duties so far this year. Please sign up to help with an occasional delivery if you can fit it into your schedule. For more information please contact Tonia Powell, the CRES Food Rescue coordinator, at tonia@bradandtonia.com or 703.201.1922.
