Both West Side and Lloyd Harbor school participated in their annual Turkey Trot celebrations. It was a fabulous sunny day, and the students loved it!
West Side Principal, Ms. Hazut, commented, "It was a huge success! as I watched children enthusiastically cheer on their peers from the other team. I observed children who had already completed the race run take the initiative to run alongside classmates who were not yet finished. Spirit week was not about winners and losers; it was about community, collaboration and joy! Many thanks to our School Improvement Team (SIT) who envisioned this incredible week. Special thanks to Sandra Rivadeneyra, Steve Forbes and Ashley Thompson for all of their thoughtful planning leading up to the Turkey Trot. Much appreciation to our generous PTG for purchasing Turkey Trot t-shirts and hats! The children had a fantastic week.
Lloyd Harbor Principal, Ms. Massimo, loved the excitement and positive energy from all the students. Thank you to physical education teacher, Mr. Toscano, for organizing this beloved event, which he has spearheaded for years (formerly at West Side, and now at Lloyd Harbor). Ms. Massimo also acknowledged Ms. Karen Uhl-Smith, who did a FABULOUS virtual trot with the remote students!
Thank you to all the students - Happy Thanksgiving!
