Students at Parkway Elementary School in East Meadow competed in the school’s annual Turkey Trot on Nov. 10.
Students participated in a timed mini marathon as they jogged around the school grounds. Parent volunteers provided water breaks and motivated students throughout the day. Students prepared for the mini marathon by learning about cardiovascular endurance and the importance of pacing yourself.
The Turkey Trot was held in conjunction with Parkway’s annual Food Drive in which students collected canned goods to support people in need during the holiday season.
