Turkey Trot, Turkey Trot, Run Run Run! For years this chant has started each heat of the annual Arbor Park Turkey Trot, and this year was no exception.  The students trained by running a mile after school each week for six weeks.The event is a fun run, not a race.  The students help each other when needed, and cheer each other on. The event not only encourages students to learn the many benefits of running, but also serves as as community service project. One student from each class will be selected to join physical education teacher Sandy Moore in delivering five turkeys to Joseph’s Coat for families in need.
