CRES Skate Night 2019

12/10/2018 9:24 pm


Join us under the Disco Ball Saturday, January 12, 2019, for CRES Family Skate Night at SkateQuest in Reston.

This is a wonderful night for your family and all of your CRES friends!  The rink is open exclusively to Colvin Run families from 6pm to 8pm. Come dressed in your Colvin Run Spiritwear and skate with the Colvin Run Dragon!


Tickets are $10 for online registration and $12 at the door. This cost is per skater and includes admission and skate rental. Only those who will be skating are required to purchase tickets. Online sales will end Friday, January 11th at 3:00 PM. Ticket purchases at the door will be cash or check only. 

A percentage of the pizza sales from the Skate Quest snack bar will go to Colvin Run - so plan to have dinner at the rink! 


Click here to volunteer to help!

Please direct any questions to our Skate Night chairs, Maureen Boyle and Krista Giunchi.




(Note: you must log into your PTO website account to make a purchase.)

Hybla Valley Donation Drive

12/7/2018 10:33 pm

Bags of clothing= 150

Boxes of food= 152

Grocery gift cards= $1,545

Generosity of CRES families= PRICELESS


We would like to take this opportunity to thank our amazing CRES community for your overwhelming generosity towards our annual Hybla Valley Food and Clothing drive. The donations have been pouring in over the last few weeks and our CRES staff and students have been very busy sorting and packing them up for delivery. As you can see above, this year was an incredible showing of how much our community cares and gives back!! THANK YOU!!!


Also, we would like to recognize CRES staff members that went above and beyond to organize the students every day and spend their mornings sorting and packing up all of the donations. Joni Corbett and Anita Ellis spent every morning, along with our students, going through every bag and placing items in boxes to transport them to Hybla Valley. Thank you for your hard work and dedication. Thank you also to Felicia Allen and Barb Ruffner for your help during this drive!


None of this would have been possible without our passionate and dedicated chairs of this drive: Tina Sarani, Ann Malekzadeh, and Maureen Boyle. They have been working for months, planning with Hybla Valley, to find out what the specific needs of their families are, and then communicated that to our community. Thank you to the Jennifer Colman for giving up her garages during this collection. Thank you also to all of the volunteers who showed up on December 4th to load up cars and drive the donations down to Hybla Valley Elementary school in Alexandria. Also, a big thank you to Safeway for donating the brown bags to collect the donations.


We are incredibly blessed to be in a community that so willingly actively cares for others.
