The Turkey Trot was a huge success! Thank you, Coach Arroyo! The energy was palpable as students, teachers and parents cheered on the runners. Students afterward shared how uplifting and energizing it was to run through the cheering crowd. I loved seeing all of the effort that each and every participant invested. I am also grateful for all of the 5th grade leaders who helped run the event. Their kindness and willingness to help in whatever capacity was needed was heartwarming. All of the coyotes made me proud with their effort, support for each other and their spirit! Check out pictures here: Turkey Trot 2022 Google Photo Album.
