Walk to School Day
What is Walk to School Day?
International Walk to School Day takes place on the first Wednesday of October each year. This event first began in 1997 to bring awareness to the need for walkable communities. During this event, students from all over the world are encouraged to walk or bike to school with their families to not only promote a healthy lifestyle, but to show the need for safer and more accessible streets as well as cleaner air.
We encourage you to head to http://walkbiketoschool.org/ for more information, as well as to check out all of the schools participating.
Important Info and DetailsAs we have three different elementary schools in the area, we will have three different meeting spots for students to join us. We would love for each student to get creative with their participation. Make signs to carry, make a walking school bus, and bring your enthusiasm!
Prairie Creek Elementary SchoolFor students at this school, we will be meeting at 7:30 in the Courts at Fairfield Village located at 169th and Mur-Len. The meeting location will be at the end of 169th before you would turn left (where the started road is). We will walk along the sidewalks of Mur-Len towards the school together. Please see the map located in the documents section on the right side of this page for more information.
Spring Hill Elementary SchoolWe will meet in the parking lot of Life Springs Church at 7:30 and walk along Webster to school. Please see the map located in the documents section on the right side of this page for more information.
Wolf Creek Elementary SchoolTo keep the students safe in this area, we will be meeting at the Club House in the sub-division directly next to the school at 7:30 and we will walk around the neighborhood to get to school. Please see the map located in the documents section on the right side of this page for more information.
It's free, but we still need all students registered by (TBD) to ensure we have plenty of volunteers on-hand at each location!
