Turkey Trot information

New, unwrapped toys can be brought in and count as points toward class goals!


We encourage you to invite people (Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and even your neighbors). The more visitors you have representing your class, the better chance you have to win. If you bring younger siblings, they will not be allowed on the track unless they are in a stroller. CHECK IN ON THE PAVILION.

AT THE END OF EACH SESSION, TEACHERS WILL HAVE A TURKEY TROT SIGN OUT SHEET FOR ANY PARENTS WHO WOULD LIKE TO CHECK OUT THEIR CHILD FOLLOWING THE RACE. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE YOUR ID.
