The health and physical education department at Hopewell Elementary School recently hosted the eighth annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot, with over 200 fifth and sixth grade students running a one-mile cross-country race around the school grounds. First place winners in each grade level received a gift card donated by the Oxford Parent Teacher Organization. The Hopewell staff donated several turkeys that were presented to race participants through a raffle.
