End of Year Book Fair - June 4-8



Stock up on fun books to read this summer! Our PTO Book Fair is scheduled for June 4-8.


This year Scholastic has added a new eWallet feature to make it easier for kids to purchase books they love! It works much like the "My School Bucks" program used for the lunch purchases:


1) Parents log into the eWallet site and deposit a specific amount of money for the book fair.


2) Students can purchase books and other items at the book fair using the eWallet allowance.


3) Their purchases are charged to the credit card associated with the account. Children may not go over the designated amount and any unused funds will not be charged or will be refunded back to the credit card.


Learn more and set up your eWallet here

Teacher Appreciation Week



The PTO pulled out all the stops to help honor our wonderful teachers and staff. On Monday the teacher lounge was decorated and parents brought in wonderful desserts for the Dessert Buffet. Wednesday a coffee and pastry cart delivered fresh items to the classrooms before the day began. Thursday the staff was treated to a festively decorated teacher lounge and a delicious lunch catered by Jason’s Deli.


 School Supply Kits - Pre-orders Available Soon

Once again the CRES PTO's awesome school supply team is organizing a cheaper, easier way to get the school supplies our kids will need next year. The teachers are finalizing their supply lists now so pre-orders for next year will go live soon!

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.
