Construction at Grayfox Drive between Red Cedar Drive and Vista Valle Drive continues to force pedestrians into the street near traffic.

Street work blocks walkway to school
Construction at several areas of sidewalk along Grayfox Drive has hindered the walk to school for many studentsof Miramar Ranch Elementary School.

The project not only eliminates several hundred feet of parking for parents picking up and dropping off children for school, but also clogs the street for vehicles and often forces pedestrians, including students, onto the street to walk near traffic and around the construction.

Construction will continue this week on Grayfox between Red Cedar Drive and Vista Valle Drive. Pipes, signs and barriers line a portion of the street on one side while wide wooden planks appear over several construction pits at intervals on sidewalks along both sides of the street. Piles of debris and gravel, covered by plastic tarps, are in the street next to the curbs.

Three enterprising students raise funds
Three second graders at St. Gregory the Great Catholic School worked a lemonade stand this past summer to earn money to donate to the new preschool that recently opened on the school campus. Maddie, Clare, and Ellarose made homemade chocolate chip cookies, brownies and fresh lemonade for their thirsty customers.

The three girls have been watching the new preschool being built for the past year and wanted to contribute to its opening.

Mrs. Amy Igou, preschool director, invited the girls to shop online with her to make their selections for items for the new preschool. They chose a cash register with a basket of groceries, a dollhouse, and an Imaginext Serpent Strike Pyramid Challenge with the $120 they raised.

“We wanted to make sure that we chose things for both boys and girls,” Maddie said.
