PLEASE HELP US GET A CYCLE TRACK IN FRONT OF BROOKSHIRE!

One of our Brookshire Dads, Rick Geller, has spent more than a year working behind the scenes with the City of Winter Park to build what is called a “cycle track” in front of our school on the park side. Sometimes called a “protected bike lane,” these facilities are intended to make bicycling safer and more comfortable for people of all ages and abilities. 

Rick raised $10,000.00 from the Keep Winter Park Beautiful citizens advisory board and more than $17,000.00 from the Winter Park Health Foundation towards construction. The Winter Park Bicycle Pedestrian Board voted unanimously to fund the remaining portion of the project out of unspent dollars budgeted for bicycle and pedestrian improvements.

After all this progress, we were disappointed to learn that the City’s public works department decided to not support the project. Therefore, we will need strong citizen support—especially from Brookshire families—to persuade the City Commission to build the cycle track.

The Facebook page, “Imagine Winter Park,” will post regular updates and more information. Please link to and click “Like” at:https://www.facebook.com/pages/Imagine-Winter-Park/302380836634990.

Thank you for supporting our efforts to improve the health and safety of Brookshire children.cycletrack1 cycletrack2

Bricks for Brookshire!

To raise money for the Brookshire Elementary Fund, we encourage parents and community to purchase bricks that will be custom-engraved and used to create a parent waiting area at the school near the Green Drive bike racks. The pavers will be sold for $50 each and can be given as gifts.

The paver order form can be downloaded below. Both pages of the form should be filled out and given to Shannon MacDonald (twins@tazman.net) or you can mail or drop them off to the front office at Brookshire (2500 Cady Way, WP, FL 32792). We will be selling and installing these bricks for years to come!

Details about the Installation Party will be available in the Fall of 2013, but if you come out to help create the waiting area, you can decide where to place your brick!
