The Scholastic Book Fair is Coming!!!

The Scholastic Book Fair will be at CRES on October 13th, 14th, and 15th. This year there are extended hours for parents that wish to shop on their own. Students will NOT be dismissed from class to shop at the book fair; they will need to shop with a family member in the evening or online. The fair will be set up in the CRES Library from 4:00-6:30 each evening for family shopping. Extended parent only hours will be from 1:00-3:00 each day.

Visit our page online at:

Our online fair will be available October 12th –October 23rd if you cannot make it to the actual fair, or if you want to shop with more choices.

Please consider supporting your CRES library while providing your child with some great books! All sales help fund new books and resources for our students!

In order to have a successful fair, I need parent volunteers. I will be scheduling volunteers each evening. Please contact Mrs. Hicks if you can help! 594-4170 or

Grillin’ and Chillin’

Grillin’ and Chillin’ was a HUGE success! Not only did Mother Nature provide us a beautiful night, but there were so many Roadrunner families in attendance. We estimated that there was roughly 750 people that attended Grillin’ and Chillin’. It was wonderful to see so many people at this great event!

We would be remissed if we didn’t thank all the volunteers who made this event possible. Many people gave of their time and talent to pull off this wonderful event and we are grateful to them. Without great volunteers, this event wouldn’t be possible.

Roadrunner Rally

The kids had a great time at the Roadrunner Rally last week. Teamwork was a central theme with the games that the kids played at the Roadrunner Rally. It was terrific to see our Roadrunners working together and having a great time. Many smiles were seen and laughter heard. In the words of one student, “Roadrunner Rally was epic!”

As a school, we raised $11,478. That is an impressive number! Thanks goes to everyone who made donations to this fundraiser and to those who reached out to friends, family, neighbors to garner pledges. The following are a list of top boy and top girl prize winners from each grade level:

The CRES PTO is excited to present the school with the Riley Roadrunner Traveling Trophy. This trophy was designed to be passed from classroom to classroom in hopes that it will help celebrate the many amazing accomplishments of our CRES students and community.

The first recipient of the trophy was Mr. Murch's class. They gathered the most donations for the Roadrunner Rally, with a total over $1,300. What an accomplishment!

While the Riley Roadrunner Traveling Trophy currently resides with Mr. Murch’s class, it will find a new home very soon!

Fishers Nickel Plate District Transforms into Halloween Village for Boo Bash

City offers safe trick-or-treating alongside opportunities to connect with local businesses

Fishers, IN – Mark the calendar, plan a costume and get ready for the return of Boo Bash in the Nickel Plate District. Once again, the City of Fishers is transforming the Nickel Plate District into a Halloween village to offer safe trick-or-treating, live music, games and activities, and even a costume contest for children under 12 and families. Boo Bash returns on Friday, October 23 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., and is free for anyone to attend.

Roughly 50 local businesses and organizations will be represented at trick-or-treat booths during the event, which means while children enjoy playing a game or getting a piece of candy, parents can enjoy learning more about services available in the community. Complimentary Pat’s Philly Pretzels and hot chocolate will be available at the concession stand on a first come, first served basis throughout the event. Boo Bash also features a costume contest for infants through 12 year old children. This year, the costume contest also includes a family category, so start planning now!

Boo Bash is a free event that welcomes Fishers residents and those in surrounding communities. Those attending the event are encouraged to visit the website and plan ahead; 116th Street will be closed at the railroad crossing for construction during the event. The detour map will assist families in planning their route and parking around the Nickel Plate District. Those attending are also encouraged to share their photos using the hashtag #BooBash during the event.


About Boo Bash:
Fishers Parks & Recreation strives to connect businesses with residents during diverse, community-wide events. 60 vendor booths are available for local businesses and organizations. Anyone interested in hosting a booth are encouraged to contact Lorna Steele at, today.
