Join the South School community for Ruby Bridges Walk/Bike to School Day on Monday, November 14th. In library skills, Mrs. James will discuss the civil rights icon Ruby Bridges, and her brave walk to school as she became one of the first Black children to integrate an all-white school in New Orleans. Wear PURPLE on November 14, 2022 to celebrate Ruby and promote safe and inclusive schools and communities for all!
The grade level with the most participants will have the golden shoe displayed in their classrooms PLUS extra 15 minutes of recess!
As an OPTION for families who would like to WALK, but can’t safely navigate to school, there will be meet locations for each grade. Please have your child at the location at 8-8:05 to begin their walk. If you wouldn’t allow your child to walk unattended to school, please make sure you stay with them and walk; there will be one parent there for general safety, but they will not be personally responsible for your child.
NOTE: the meet locations are NOT FOR BIKERS to be dropped off.
