John Muir Elementary PTSA is sponsoring our 12th Annual John Muir Turkey Trot to promote physical fitness and school spirit. This event will be November 5th – 9th, 2012. The Turkey Trot is a much anticipated John Muir tradition in which students run or walk laps around our school during their afternoon recess. The students who run the most laps in each grade level will earn a turkey to share with their family. This is also a charity event in which we will be donating a turkey to families in need in our community who cannot afford a turkey for Thanksgiving. John Muir Elementary is a Title 1 school with nearly half of our students receiving reduced or free lunches.
Donations are greatly appreciated. Those interested can give frozen turkeys (or a monetary donation so the PTSA may purchase turkeys). Donors will be thanked via the weekly news from John Muir Elementary and the PTSA, which will be sent home to all school families around the time of the event. Please note that your contribution is completely tax deductible as a donation to John Muir Elementary PTSA 501 (c) 3, Tax ID number 91-1086931.
