The grounds of Freeport’s Archer Street Elementary School and Bayview Avenue School were bustling with students and staff on Nov. 26 for the schools’ annual turkey trot.
Students and staff wore decorative Thanksgiving crowns, held up crafty turkey signs and marched two laps around their buildings.
Both events acted as a means for the schools’ to donate raised funds to organizations. Archer raised $2,200 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Bayview’s fundraiser is still on going and the proceeds will be split between St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Mission United.
