Turkey Trot Information

Saturday October 28th is national “MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY” Enders-Salk students will be participating in our 23nd annual Turkey Trot and Food Drive in support of make a difference day.

This event will take place on Tuesday, November 7th. Each student has been asked to bring a canned good, boxed item or paper product donation to school.  These essential items will be given to the WACO organization and District 54 food pantry.  They distribute baskets to needy families for Thanksgiving and the holiday season.

The ambassadors will be placing a Turkey Trot box outside your classroom the week of October 23rd.

Pantry items can be brought in starting October 25th – November 7th and placed in the turkey trot box in your classroom. We are trying to break our last year’s record of 1704 items collected, with 77% of our students and staff participating in this donation.

In conjunction with the food drive, we will hold the Turkey Trot on Tuesday, November 7th.  In this event students are eligible for prizes based on who comes closest to their estimated run time in the ½ mile run.

Any questions please ask!

Thank you, for helping Enders-Salk “Make a Difference”

On Tuesday, October 31, we will be celebrating Halloween by having our Annual Costume Parade and Halloween Room Parties. Students will have a typical lunch/recess and get prepared for the parade once they return to their classrooms.  All parade spectators will remain outside for the duration of the parade. Our parade will begin at 1:00 PM and follow this route:

  • The students will exit the back doors
  • We will take the path behind the parks and use the sidewalk on Salem
  • We will enter the building using the front doors
  • Students will go directly to their classrooms for their party

All Halloween room parties will begin immediately following the parade and end by 2:30 PM.  If you are volunteering in a classroom, please check into the office at 1:00.   Only those people that are on the volunteer list in the main office will be allowed to help at the party.
