Click here to download and print the Roadrunner postcard!


This year the theme is Teachers Across America and our Roadrunner is gearing up for a fun-filled road trip across the USA. The PTA and Administration has packed the week full of events for both the teachers and students.   Road trip themed decorations, bulletin boards, music in the hallways, and short videos on the morning announcements are just some of the sights and sounds teachers and students will experience during Teacher Appreciation Week. Teachers will be treated to daily events, goodies, and raffle prizes as well. We will need everyone’s participation and energy to fuel this exciting journey!

Postcards to the Teachers

On Tuesday, April 25th, a customizable MRES Roadrunner postcard came home in your student’s Tuesday folder titled, “Thanks for the Memories” for your student to complete for any MRES teacher. Students will return the postcards to the school by arrival time on May 3rd, and “mail” them in a keepsake mailbox created especially for that teacher. Additional postcards will be available on the PTA website for home printing starting Friday, April 21st. All postcards will be presented to the teachers on the morning of Wednesday, May 3rd.

Students should watch the Roadrunner Report throughout the week of May 1st-5th for a chance to see their photo!
