We had a fun time trotting on our new elementary track this past week! Our Upper Elementary Turkey trot was a success and we even had a life size Turkey show up to trot with the 3rd 4th and 5th graders! Mr Bush joined in on the Turkey Trot fun too!

Thank you to all of the Elementary families that supported this fund raising efforts that will benefit programming for all Upper Elementary students! Over $800 was raised!
