Park Ave. 5th graders at the starting line of the Turkey Trot

On November 17th, Park Avenue Elementary had our Turkey Trot race. In an effort to get all students involved and excited about fitness, a race was planned and sponsored by several businesses in the community. All students in both 4th and 5th grade had the opportunity to compete. The students did an excellent job running the one mile race and gave amazing effort. We were very proud of the students and all their perseverance throughout the training in class and the race. The first place winners in 5th grade were Alexyn Candeleria and Alex Wilson. In 4th grade our winners were Taner Olguin and Autumn Villanueva. Way to go students!!

4th grade boy winners

The first place winners in both 4th and 5th grade received turkeys to take home to their families for Thanksgiving. The first 5 places also received specially made shirts, and all top ten places received certificates. Many student's names were also put in a raffle prize drawing for their excellent effort and they won sport equipment, pumpkin pies, and other items. We would like to say a special THANK YOU to our sponsors who helped to make this year's Turkey Trot a success. Thank you to Main Street Spirit, Aztec A&W, Aztec's Anytime Fitness, Vanilla Moose, And Aztec Restaurant. I would also like to say a special thank you to Ms. Taylor and Mrs. Magee who helped at the finish line and all the other staff who jumped in and helped to make this a success. We could not have had such an amazing event without your help!
