Calling all turkeys! TODAY (Friday) is the last day to register for the Catoctin Turkey Trot Fun Run taking place at the Catoctin Elementary School Track on Sunday, November 19!

We will have a limited quantity of Turkey Trot shirts for sale on race day, $15 each. Venmo payment accepted.

Also, get your costumes ready because on race day, we will be selecting winners in three costume categories per age group (Kindergarten, 1st - 2nd grade, and 3rd - 5th grade)!

SILLIEST Race Attire

If we have enough runners, we plan to hold two heats for each age group. Kindergarten heats will start at approximately 10:00 am and 10:15 am, 1st - 2nd grade heats will start at approximately 10:45 am and 11:05 am, and 3rd - 5th grade heats will start at approximately 11:30 am and 12:00 pm.

Harvest Fest is nearly here! If your child would like a chance to win one of the baskets, but you will be unable to attend Harvest Fest on Saturday, you can purchase tickets thru Thursday and have the PTA submit your entries. To"pre-enter" you need to follow two steps:

๐Ÿ‘Pay for your tickets via the form on PTB Board -https://catoctines.ptboard.com/formvw?store=4177&form=8
Submit your entry form so the PTA knows what prize(s) you would like to try win - https://forms.gle/ivZKdcAbipjYMbbe9

๐Ÿ‘If you are selecting multiple prizes you'd like to enter to win, the PTA will divide up the tickets you purchase evenly between those baskets to keep things simple.

Any questions, email the Harvest Fest Committee at [email protected]!

Teams are now forming for the Odyssey of the Mind in the Primary (K-2) and Division 1 (3-5) grade levels. Odyssey of the Mind (OMโ„ข) teaches students how to develop and use their natural creativity to become problem-solvers. Imagine being faced with a problem that requires an original solution. It can be frightening. Now imagine not being afraid to solve that problem โ€“ that is what OM members learn. This skill and self-confidence will carry over to all areas of their lives.

Parents can submit a registration request via the following form:

https://forms.gle/qdjMiVMBcenHa7Ro7

When registering a few things to know:

Teams consist of 5-7 team members
We currently have a coach for one team in each division
Returning team members will be given priority when registering
Based on the interest expressed so far, I do believe we will have enough students to form 1-2 more teams. In order to form those teams, we will need coaches.

The commitment to coach is 1-2 hours a week while the teams are working on their long-term problems and then participating in the Regional Tournament that is in late February or early March. We provide mentorship and training to new coaches, as we've been there before!

If you have any questions please email us at [email protected].
