Turkey Trot returns to SPS: Wednesday, Nov. 15th
This time last year Seven Peaks School students, with the help of family, friends and neighbors, raised a total of $4,890 which covered the cost of 200 complete Thanksgiving meals and a cash donation to a local food bank.
Tis the season of giving, sharing and embracing those who need of a little extra help in our community. We are happy to announce, in partnership with Whole Foods and The Giving Plate, that we are once again committed to providing complete Thanksgiving meals to local families. These special meal bags will include a fresh turkey complete with all the fixings which will be lovingly assembled by the grade level that raises the most money. Everyone is welcome to join the “trotting fun” on Wednesday, November 15 from 10:30am – 12:00pm at Skyliner Field, adjacent to Seven Peaks School. Once the bags are packed, the winners will also load them onto The Giving Plate truck which will then transport, store and disperse to families throughout our community.
Last year, our 4th graders raised the most money. Therefore, received the honor of assembling 200 meal bags and enjoyed an extended recess with hot chocolate. Our 6th graders ran the most laps during the Turkey Trot and they earned an extended recess with hot chocolate. But for the best turkey costume, Peyton Egeland received two movie passes.
