Join us this Wednesday to celebrate Walk to School Day!
No Uniforms for Participants!
All students that participate are excused from wearing their uniforms as long as they wear a yellow or orange shirt. (We used to celebrate with yellow balloons so I'm hoping the kids will represent the balloons for us this year).
Everyone Can Participate!
We know not everyone can walk to school from their house. But everyone can participate in Walk to School Day. Here are all the ways:
- Walk, Bike, Scoot from your home (anything but a car)
- Take public transportation
- Drive your car to within two blocks and park and walk the rest of the way.
Enjoy the Benefits
There are so many studies that show a wide range of benefits of walking to school, from fighting childhood obesity to higher academic achievement, to cleaner air at our schools. But I hope you will enjoy the extra time with your child as you walk together, or the freedom and independence your child feels if they are old enough to walk or bike with friends.
