The John F. Ryan Elementary School held its annual Turkey Trot for the sixth grade class on Wednesday, Nov.25.
Students competed in relay races under and over obstacles while carrying a football, replacing the classic frozen turkey of years past. Principals, teachers and staff all help cheer the students on and encourage a festive spirit, including sporting Turkey Team t-shirts and turkey headgear.
Hand in hand with this event is a food drive for the Tewksbury Food Pantry. This year’s collection, organized and delivered by the Ryan School PAC, resulted in the delivery of three-minivans full of food donations.
The Ryan PAC would like to thank students and staff for their generous donations and help with this team building event.
