IT IS ALMOST TIME TO TROT!
The Turtle Trot is sponsoring a Classroom competition.The classroom with the highest percentage of participants (the bottom of the paper form gives the option of assigning credit to a family) will receive a pizza party! Please ask your family and friends to join us for the Turtle Trot and indicate your family name on the registration form so your child's room will receive credit!!
Every child in that family will receive a credit for each participant signed up. Example: the Smith family has a 2nd grader and a 4th grader. Both students will get credit for any registration form that indicates "Smith" family.
All Turtle Trot proceeds directly benefit the students of St. Nicholas School. We are looking forward to seeing you on the 27th!
