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 the Walk & Bike to School website for more information, as well as to check out all of the schools participating.
Important Info and Details
As we have FIVE different elementary schools in the area, we will have FIVE 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!
Parents are encouraged and welcome to walk with us.
Please register your child(ren) for this event, so we know how many staff to have at each location to make the walk safe for you and your child(ren).
