Getting Picture Perfect for your RES Fall Family Photo Day!

This Sunday is our annual RES PTA Photo Day fundraiser! An extremely talented local family photographer, Claudia Pacifico, is donating her entire sitting fee to help us pay for the many educational, enrichment and community-building programs we run each year. And friends of the RES PTA will have amazing photos, taken at the Redding Historical Society‘s historic, beautiful Lonetown Farm, with peak fall foliage in the background!

If you haven’t signed up already, you can do so through your account, or contact us via Facebook or email. If you can’t figure out how to sign up on MSA, just reach out and we’ll walk you through the two-step process.

If you HAVE signed up, you’re probably spending the next few days brainstorming ideas for great family outfits that will pop against the foliage. Here are some tips from our fabulous photographer’s blog. And here are some ideas from our BRAND NEW RES PTA Pinterest page! We have scoured Pinterest for the best advice on everything from makeup to posing to color combos!

What is your favorite tip for flattering family photos? We want to hear from you!

Square 1 Art




Welcome Letter

Dear Family,
Your child has been busy making beautiful artwork that can be made into many fun products such as magnets, t-shirts, mouse pads, ornaments and much more!

Coming home to you soon is a school sponsored elementary fundraiser called Square 1 Art. Square 1 takes your child’s artwork and makes it into great products for you to purchase. These products are wonderful keepsakes and gifts for family and friends. Celebrate your child’s artistic achievement and support our school at the same time!

The money raised from this fundraiser will enable us to continue its efforts in supporting our students. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and allows us to continue offering educational opportunities to our school!

Stay tuned for more information on how to order!
