Johnson Park Elementary School PTO

Turkey Trot


On Friday, November 21st at 1:15 p.m. JP pupils and staff members (with the help of parent volunteers) will participate in a one mile run in honor of Thanksgiving.  The “entrance fee” for the run will be a minimum of 25 cans/boxes of food per class.  

JP will donate the collected items to the pantry at TASK (the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen).  There are prizes, such as an extra recess or a surprise treat, to the three classes who collect the most items.  


In addition – Before the Turkey Trot begins, each grade level or class will show its “Turkey Trot Spirit” by participating in a short skit or rendition of a song.  Do you hear them practicing???  This is really fun for the kids and parents alike.  Please come and watch these fun skits!  Additionally, if you are able to lend a hand, please sign up at the Sign-up Genius  website:
