Trick or Trot 5K & Cross Country Fun Run, October 28, 2018

The second annual Trick or Trot 5K & Fun Run battled a stormy forecast for the second consecutive year, but you would have never known from all of the smiles, speedy race times and clever costumes. With more than 300 students, alumni, faculty/staff, grandparents and friends in attendance, this event brought together our entire community for a fun-filled morning in support of our students and teachers. View the slideshow to see photos from the 5K race, Fun Run obstacle course and carnival. Many thanks to our event chairs Sety Britton and Beth Vartuli, planning committee and the many volunteers who helped make the Trick or Trot such a memorable day. Mark your calendars for next year’s Trick or Trot on October 27, 2019!
