Tortuga Trot Update 12.16.23

Good evening Sanderlin family!  This is Julia Sharp, President of the Parent Teacher Student Association, or PTSA. You should receive a flier today in your child’s agenda about the PTSA Tortuga Trot 5K & Fun Run/Walk event. 

We are so excited to bring back this fun family event! It’s a great way to get to know your fellow sea turtle families, promote healthy activity, as well as explore our City’s natural beauty.

The event will be held the morning of Saturday, January 22nd at Del Holmes Park in St Petersburg. There are two routes, a one-mile fun run/walk and a 5K for those who are ready to go the distance. Registration links, sponsor information, and all event details can be found on our website:

Speaking of t-shirts and sponsorship opportunities! Tortuga Trot participants MUST sign up before Thursday January 6th to receive a t-shirt (cost $13)! Check out the PTSA Facebook page,, or website to get a sneak peak of this year’s design! It’s a school shirt you’ll want to add to your spirit wear collection. Also, sponsor logos must also be sent to us by January 6th to be included on our awesome t-shirts! We hope you will reach out to your employers and network this week to share this sponsorship opportunity with them! There’s still time for one lucky business to snag the Presenting Sponsor level and receive premium placement and name recognition on all promotional items!

On behalf of the James B Sanderlin IB World School PTSA, I want to wish you and your loved ones happy holidays and a peaceful winter break. See you in the new year!
