Parkwood had it's first annual Turkey Trot on December 2nd.  Even though it was a cold day, students tried their very best, and all students that participated, finished the race.  Mrs. Petke set up the course to go around Parkwood Park and Parkwood Elementary.  Kindergarten ran 1/4 of a mile, First Grade ran 1/2 of a mile,  Second Grade ran 3/4 of a mile and Third through Fifth Grades all ran a mile.  Medals were given for First, Second and Third Place winners for both girls and boys in each grade level. A big "thank you" goes out to all who helped make the day a big success.  We had staff and parents that were there to cheer on the students and even race with them to get them across the finish line.  When the students finished, they were then able to get some cookies and hot chocolate and support the others in their grade, or go in the gym to watch a movie until everyone in their grade was finished with the race.  It was awesome to see those big smiles at the finish line - what an accomplishment for all the students!
