Winter Walk & Roll to School & Hot Cocoa Day
Wed, Mar 1 8:05am-8:20am
Edison Elementary

Kickoff Day 3 of the Golden Sneaker Contest with hand stamping and hot cocoa (lukewarm cocoa) on the blacktop.    


Why Should We Celebrate and Encourage Walking and Rolling to School?


  • In one generation, the number of kids walking and bicycling to school has dropped from 71% to 18%.

  • Transportation is responsible for nearly 40% of the Bay Area’s harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Seventy-five percent of California students are not able to pass basic fitness standards.

  • Travel to school accounts for approximately 21% of all morning traffic.

  • It is an easy way for children to get the recommended 60 minutes of daily physical activity.


 Remember, the classroom with the highest participation over the two week contest wins a classroom party, golden shoelaces and bragging rights!
