Annual Turkey Trot 11/20 - Please RSVP!

Fri, 11/07/2014 - 12:02pm

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, Patapsco Middle School students and staff are planning the first Annual SCHOOL WIDE Turkey Trot!  The Related Arts team is sponsoring this activity on Thursday, November 20, (rain date Nov. 21) as a means of celebrating the beginning of the season of sharing.  Our students and staff are asked to donate a non-perishable food item.  Patapsco’s donations will be delivered to Grassroots of Howard County and Howard County Food Bank – “Kids Helping Kids” campaign, just in time for Thanksgiving.

Our 1.3-mile run/walk will begin at 9 a.m. in front of our building, continue through the neighborhood adjacent to school, and end on the blacktop.  Staff members and parent volunteers will assist along the racecourse.  Application has been made to Howard County Police Traffic Division for assist in maintaining safety for all participants.   All students will participate unless we have a medical note on file.

Upon completion of the Turkey Trot, the 6th and 7th graders will return to their classes.  In keeping with tradition, an 8th grade awards ceremony and celebration will take place. Certificates will be awarded to the first place 8th grade female student, 8th grade male student, staff member, and community participant.   Please provide your 8th grade student with a personal snack for the celebration after our run.  Bottled water will be provided for all three grade-levels.

We welcome those of you who wish to join us as participants in the run/walk event.  Please RSVP to the P.E. Dept. by Tuesday, Nov. 18.  No pets, please!  Thank you for your support and we hope to see you there.  Please carpool and refrain from parking along the school driveway and adjacent neighborhood.  Park at the far end of the staff lot.

 

Sincerely,

Patapsco Middle School Related Arts Team
