CRES Mission Statement

Wrangler pride is working together to reach our goals in learning and life.

Life Principle of the Week: Responsibility

Responsibility- making the choice to be reliable and dependable.

Quote: "If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a month." -Theodore Roosevelt
