“This event is such a great opportunity for students and their families to support their school while having a great time,” said Christine Boyd, Abby Reinke Principal. “Without the wonderful families, friends and sponsors who help with the Turkey Trot, we wouldn’t be able to provide access to valuable, educational resources and technology in our classrooms.”
