Patapsco Schoolwide Turkey Trot and Food Bank Donations

Fri, 11/09/2018 - 9:41am

Patapsco Middle School is gearing up for our annual SCHOOLWIDE Turkey Trot. The race is Monday, November 19th (inclement weather will result in event cancelation) from 8:30 am - 10:00 am and will include a 1.3 mile course that goes through the neighborhood. All grade levels will participate in the run. Volunteers and staff members, along with the Howard County Police Department will be supervising the event to ensure safety of participants as we run through the community roads.  We need volunteers to chaperone students on the course and to time at the finish line, sign up to volunteer.


Additionally, in the season of sharing, we will be collecting food donations in partnership with the Howard County Food Bank. Please remember we can't distribute expired food.  Some eligible items: canned meat, canned vegetables, soup, pasta, baby food, canned & dried fruit, pasta sauce, cereal, rice, fruit boxes. Students should place their food donations in their Social Studies classroom. We are doing this as a grade-level competition. So far, 7th grade is leading the way!


As always, thank you in advance for your support. Have a wonderful holiday season!

*All food donations must be turned in by Wednesday, November 14th.
