Tomorrow: Wednesday, November 23rd all Varnum Brook Elementary School students will participate in our annual Turkey Trot!

     This year we are making some changes to the race. We will start with a short rally in the gymnasium to thank the students for their generous contributions to the Food Drive for P.A.C.H. Following this our 4th grade students will proceed to the upper field (behind the school-upper parking lot area in the back of VBES) followed by grades 3,2,1 and K. This will start around 9:20 AM. Depending on their grade level, students will run one to two laps around the field. Parents are welcome to join us in the field as we cheer on all our students. This is a half day of school and dismissal is at 11:35. Teachers have plans for students to return to their classrooms to finish their school day.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our VBES Families!
