International Walk & Roll

Join the fun on Walk & Roll to School Day

Wednesday, October 12, at  8:00 am.

The students, parents, and teachers at Edison Elementary will celebrate International Walk & Roll to School Day on Wednesday, October 12th. This is a great opportunity to create community and celebrate our health, the environment, and our school spirit.  Find a buddy to walk, roll or carpool with!

What's going on?

From 8:00 am to 8:15 am Giveaways & Add Your Sticker to the school-wide mode chart to see how we get to school.  Meet representatives from our City government, Police & Fire departments.

If you live farther away:

  • Park a few blocks away and walk with your child.
  • Bike with your child.
  • Carpool with another family. 

Spare the environment and reduce morning stress for yourself: connect with other families who live in your neighborhood.
