Shannon Ranch Elementary School used its $15,000 Scholar Dollars grant to construct a new running path to enhance students’ physical education.

The path, which opened January 31, 2018, is utilized for sports and events such as the school’s annual jog-a-thon. In addition to use during school hours, the path is also open to the community to enjoy on weekends.
