The 4th Annual Roadrunner Rally is almost here. The Rally will be held on Thursday, October 6th during the school day! It’s time for all of us to come together as Roadrunners to raise money for our school. Please encourage your student to ask for pledges from family and friends.

Please use the pledge form to keep track of the pledges received. Also, you can donate online securely at . Remember to enter your student’s name, grade, and teacher in the notes box!

The CRES PTO only holds two fundraisers a year- The Roadrunner Rally and CRES Fest in the spring. We depend on the success of these events to continue our support of the CRES community! We’re excited to see the great things our Roadrunners accomplish by rallying around the school!

Prizes will be awarded for those that participate in collecting donations, along with prizes for those with the most donations! Go rally those pledges, Roadrunners - we can reach this goal together!
