The Gator Crossing Track Committee met our 2015-2016 goal and the Gator Crossing walking track 1/5 of a mile track was installed on the playground of Glengary Elementary in July 2016. We would like to thank our parent, student and business communities for your support in helping us achieve this goal. Along with a robust walking/running track, a walking path for our students, who walk to school and enter the playground from Brisbane Street, was also included. Our students will use the track for PE Class, annual Fun Run, Field Day, Girls on the Run, Stride, Mileage club, after school activities and community events.
Our vision is that the Gator Crossing Walking Track will provide another safe avenue for children to increase activity both during the school day and after school. We also hope that the track can provide a place for a child to go when he/she may not have a playmate at recess. If that child starts to walk or run around that track, chances are, someone will want to join them! Our playground is accessible to the community during the evening hours and throughout the summer. The track would make a welcome addition to all of our existing playground equipment!
Each donor will be invited to our ribbon cutting ceremony after the children return to school on September 15, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. Our goal is to hold our annual Fun Run as the inaugural event on the track on October 14, 2016, followed by our annual Halloween parade shortly after the Fun Run!
