Turkey Trot Help Wanted

We need your help. Everyone is invited to the next TURKEY TROT Committee Meeting on October 5th at 10:30 AM in the Stem Lab.

The Turkey Trot, is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we are hoping that with your help, it will be successful.

PLEASE share this info and invite as many parents from your grade as you can to this meeting. It would be great to fill the room.

At our last meeting, each grade was assigned activities that they are responsible to plan for, prepare for and run. These were reviewed at our last meeting. Please see below, there have been a few changes.

Your ROOM PARENT is the point of contact for your grade and we hope that they are making plans with other room parents, active parents and friends to coordinate the actives and get other volunteers from your grade to help run the activities assigned.

If, you have questions, please contact your room parent.

For some grades you will notice that no one is assigned as the Coordinator, that the grade has “???”. This means that no adult has stepped up to help with this grade and that this grade may go without being asked to help in anyway, the event/activity may be canceled and the T.T. won’t be as much fun for our students. Let’s not let that happen. Please email CandeoPTO@gmail.com if you can help with any of these grades.

If you would like to see an example if the carnival activities you were assigned or if you would like to pick a different activity, no worries. Go tohttps://www.pinterest.com/explore/homemade-carnival-games/

Please let us know if we got any of the assignments incorrect and if you do make other changes, email us so that we can change it on the map.

Kindergarten- Activities: Duck Matching Game and Basket Toss

1st- Activities: Ping Pong Fish and Hula Hoop Toss

2nd- Activities: Dream Catcher Craft and Flower Crowns

3rd- Activities: Toilet Paper Toss and Jenga

4th- Coordinator: ??? Activities: Ring Toss 12 Bottles and Hay Stack Find

5th- Coordinator: ??? Activities: Pumpkin Painting

6th- Coordinator: ??? Activities: Bungi Jousting Combo or Dunk Tank

7th- Activities: Science Center Helpers and a carnival activity of your choosing. Go to https://www.pinterest.com/explore/homemade-carnival-games/

8th- Coordinator: ???? Activities: Obstacle Course Helpers and Minute to Win It Games or Kurplunk

At our last meeting, there was some discussion about grade level baskets. This is great idea. So, if you want to make one, SUPER! Baskets will be auctioned or raffled. If your grade would like to make a basket for the auction or raffle it would be greatly appreciated. 🙂

What’s next?

Hopefully, your room parent is reaching out to your classes to enlist help preparing your activity/event.

Next, we will need to focus on Sponsors and Donations.

For things like pies, hot dogs and plates a signup genius has been set up. To see what we need, please go to https://candeopto.wordpress.com/…/candeo-turkey-trot-and-f…/

Also, a Sponsors and Donations Flyer has been create. It will be going out to every student in the school this Wednesday. If you need extra copies, we will leave some in the K-5 Workroom. You can also access the flyer info athttps://candeopto.wordpress.com/…/candeo-turkey-trot-and-f…/

Please share both of these links with any T.T. info that you send to the parents in your grade and to any businesses that you reach out to by email.

Our goal is to get 100% of the T.T Sponsored!

If you do start collecting Sponsors and Donors, please let us know asap. Just email CandeoPTO@gmail.com.
