On Wednesday, Park Terrace Elementary School, in conjunction with Nathan Littauer Hospital, joined millions of students around the world on International Walk to School Day.
One hundred forty students - plus staff members, parents and community members - walked from the corners of Park and Forest streets to Park Terrace School. The three-quarters-of-a-mile walk was supervised by the Gloversville Police Department to direct traffic and ensure safety.
We would like to recognize and thank all the parents and students who walked, as well as the Park Terrace faculty and staff, and especially Sue Cridland and Cheryl McGrattan from Nathan Littauer Hospital for their direction and support of this wonderful school and community event.
We didn't realize walking to school could be so much fun. It was great to see everyone walking, talking and enjoying each other's company as we embarked this uphill journey to school. Also, thanks to Nathan Littauer Hospital, Ezryn Brooker was the lucky person who won a brand new bike for his participation in the event. Ezryn's name was drawn from the pool of students who participated.
Thank you again to the Gloversville Police Department and Nathan Littauer Hospital for promoting heath and safety for our children and our community.
