Grasonville Elementary holds Turkey Trot
GRASONVILLE — On Friday, Nov. 18, students at Grasonville Elementary participated in the annual Turkey Trot. Students in Kindergarten through second grade ran a half mile loop around the school grounds while students in third through fifth grade ran a mile loop.
Physical education teacher Heidi Wilkes organizes several runs throughout the year that occur both during and after school. Students participate in the Boo Run, Turkey Trot, Reindeer Run and Spring into Spring Run. These themed runs are traditions the students look forward to throughout the year.
In addition to these school-wide runs, Wilkes runs an after school Track and Field Club that encourages students to make exercise part of their daily lives and to always run their personal best.
Physical education teacher Heidi Wilkes and computer specialist teacher Lisa Callaghan stand with the top 10 girl and boy finishers in the fourth grade.
Third-grade students start of in a mad dash during their mile long loop.
