Monroe Road Elementary (MRE)
opened in August 2001 as the fifth elementary building for Bedford
Public Schools. Our school serves 680 students in grades K-6 in
Lambertville, Michigan. During that first year, our students chose
the ‘mustang’ as our mascot. They also voted to be
a ‘multi-colored’ school so our school colors are many – red,
blue, green, orange and yellow with brown added to give the mustang
its natural color. We are proud of
the achievement of our students, the team work of our staff, and
the active involvement of our parents. We invite you to explore
our website to see why our theme for this year is “Bedford Strong! ... MRE Proud!”

who have freely given their support, time, and energy to enhance
our students’ learning opportunities. Our PTA has provided
programs, finances, and time to enrich our staff and students’ time
at MRE. Our many parent volunteers have cut, pasted, copied, read,
