The Springs School "Turkey Trot" has returned for a second exciting year! This year's Trot will be Monday, November 23rd. Here are some important reminders:

Please dress your children appropriately for the Trot.  The forecast calls for 40 degrees so please make sure students are dressed warm. Comfortable shoes are a must. Children should wear sneakers. Layers are a great idea!

·       There will be no parking after 8:45 AM on School Street and on the Springs School Campus.  Please remember that if you need to move your car, you will not be allowed to do so until both races are complete. That will be at approximately 10:30 AM.

The rain date will be Nov. 24th. Through sponsorships, last year's event raised $9,500 to support our PTA Swim Program and an ice-skating event at Buckskill for grades 6-8. Mrs. Knight's fourth grade class won the "Turkey Trophy" for raising $625 in sponsorships.

Last year, the school took part in this fun walk/run. School Street and a portion of Old Stone Highway will be closed with the help of the EHPD and Fire Department officials, as well as parent volunteers who assist us and cheer everyone on. Please click below to see the flyer and sponsor sheet and to view more information!

If you would like to volunteer to help out that day, or to help with preparations, please contact Claire Condon at: cwclaire@gmail.com

TURKEY TROT

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2015

Hooray! the Turkey Trot is Almost Here…Here are some Last Minute Points:

 

·       Sponsorship Forms as due no later than Monday, November 23rd.  However, if you have received any business or personal sponsors of $100 or more please contactpta@springsschool.org so that we can include the sponsors on our thank you boards which will be displayed at the end of the Trot.

 

·       Please dress your children appropriately for the Trot.  Comfortable shoes are a must and although the forecast thus far looks relatively warm, we want the kids to be dressed in the proper outerwear. We encourage children to wear sneakers.

 

·       There will be no parking after 8:45 AM on School Street and on the Springs School Campus.  Please remember that if you need to move your car you will not be allowed to do so until both races are complete.

 

·       Please remember to make sure that your child has completed and submitted his or her permission slip to their teacher.

 

·       We are still looking for volunteers to help cheer the kids on and to ensure their safety. If you are available, please contact Claire Condon at cwclaire@gmail.com and she will assign you to an area where we need help.

 

·       Remember any donation no matter how small will help to keep our YMCA Swim Program as part of the children’s curriculum. Thank you!
