Thank You, Room Parents!

 Thanks to all who served as a Room Parent this year.  We hope it was a rewarding experience for you.  As we all head our different directions for the summer, please consider if you'd like to serve as a Room Parent next year whether you've done it before or not. 


We welcome everyone, new, experienced, working parent, stay at home parent, anyone can do it.  While you don't know your child's teacher yet you can still send your child's name and grade as we start the list of volunteers now.  Just send a quick note to Jenny Peoples at cresroomparent@gmail.com.  Enjoy your summer!


 School Supply Kits - Order Now

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. Colvin Run’s pre-packaged school supplies program is now accepting orders for the 2018-19 school year. The PTO works with teachers to finalize each grade’s supply list. We secure competitive pricing and put these products all in one place online for parents’ convenience.


Our new vendor, School Tool Box offers parents more flexibility when purchasing pre-packaged school supplies, including:

  • Orders can be placed throughout the summer – allow 2 weeks for shipping.
  • Once your order is placed, supplies are delivered directly to your home. 
  • Going out of town - no problem. You can schedule the week your supplies are delivered. 
  • Customize your order by adding or removing items you already own from the approved lists. Already have scissors or headphones? Take them off the list and save.



  • Visit www.schooltoolbox.com
  • Click on “Find Boxes Now” at the top right of the page
  • Enter Colvin Run Elementary to find your child’s supply list

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.


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.
