The dust has settled and we have the grand total for the Fun Run, drum roll please....$36, 611!! That is the largest amount fundraised to date, for any Fun Run at Matthew Turner! We exceeded previous years by more than $10K! A huge thank you to the parents, grandparents, relatives, friends, neighbors, volunteers and everyone else who supported the Fun Run! This money will fund new technology in the classrooms, outdoor education programs and so much more. We couldn't do it without our Turner community, and we are grateful for all of you. The PTA sends you our heartfelt thanks and wishes for a relaxing and restorative Thanksgiving break .🧡

Dear Turner Families,
As a district, we are recognizing and supporting World Unity Day on Wednesday October 23. During this day it would be great if everyone could wear orange or something orange to show we are together against bullying and UNITED for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. This day is important and also supports Turner’s vision of creating a space where everyone feels they belong. Students and staff are being asked to unite and wear something orange (a shirt, bracelet, ribbon, pants, shorts, socks, shoes, etc).. Here is a link for more information on Unity Day. https://www.pacer.org/bullying/nbpm/unity-day.asp
Do you need help with back to school? Are transitions hard for your kids? Learn tips and tricks on how to get back into the groove this fall and during the holiday season.
THANK YOU Turner families for another successful Fun Run! It looks like we may have exceeded our goal, but we will share the grand total next week, so stay tuned! For now, know that the PTA appreciates you, your commitment and passion for our school, and together we make amazing things happen for our kids.
A very special THANK YOU goes out to Jaclyn Perdigao Prebula and family for their generous donation of all the cute Fun Run shirts that every student received. You guys are the best!!
