Turkey Trot

General Information

Fulton’s 8th Annual Turkey Trot will be held on Monday, November 20th for grades 3, 4, & 5 and on Tuesday, November 21st for grades K, 1, & 2.  (schedule below!)


The students will take part in a run around a designated course. Upon finishing the run, each child will receive a certificate with a number on it. The points on each certificate will be random. The certificates will be added up by class and this total number will go towards the class’s final Turkey Trot score. No matter when a student finishes the Turkey Trot course, he/she will still be contributing to their class score! The emphasis of the Turkey Trot is for our students to demonstrate to the community the importance of having a strong and healthy heart.


The event is also a food drive. This part of the Turkey Trot will show the community that Fulton students not only know the importance of having healthy hearts, but also giving hearts! We are asking that students bring in non-perishable food items to the box in their classroom. Each class will add five (5) points to their class’s score for each item donated. The class in each grade with the highest Turkey Trot score (the total of points accumulated from the run and food drive, divided by the number of students in the class) will receive the Turkey Trot Award! We will also have a GRAND PRIZE (donated by the PTA!) for the class with the highest Turkey Trot score out of the entire school! The Grand Prize is a class party at Pump It Up!!
