Wednesday October 4th is International Walk to School Day! It’s a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day!
We’d like to encourage everyone to walk or bike to Sego Lily on that day! Students will get a small prize when they arrive at the school! Also, the class with the highest percentage of students who walk/bike to school that day will receive a class prize!
This events promotes walking and bicycling for several reasons:
√ Physical Activity
√ Teaching safe pedestrian and bicycling skills to children
√ Awareness of how walkable & bikeable a community is and where improvements can be made
√ Concern for the environment
√ Reducing traffic congestion, pollution and speed near schools
√ Sharing time with community leaders, parents and children
