12th Annual Turkey Trot

TT turkey.jpg


The PTA's 12th annual Turkey Trot was a huge success!  The students had a great time running while listening to music, winning cool prizes and eating lots of delicious food from our vendors and they raised $26,000 for Ensign!   This money will go directly to fund programs including:  science enhancement, Reflections Art program, Ensign library, NHHS scholarships, 8th grade promotion dance, teacher appreciation week, parent education and more.


Mr. Fuschetti's 3rd period won the Sgt Pepperoni pizza party for bringing in the most amount of money - Congrats Mr. Fuschetti!

Over 100 prizes were given out to students that brought in $150 or more, 10 grand prizes were given out to students that brought in $250 or more, approximately 20 leftover prizes were raffled off to students that brought in less than $150 and hundreds of mile passes were given out to kids that brought in $50 or more!


A big THANK YOU to the school staff for making this event run so smoothly and for all of your enthusiasm - PE Teachers, Dale our Custodian, Frank in Security, Mr. Sciacca, the cafeteria staff, front office staff and more!

  • Look for the envelope in each classroom where you may leave your donation. 
  • Make checks payable to Ensign PTA and include your teacher's name on the check.
