Walk to School Day is Next Week!
Wednesday October 10, 2018
Why host a Walk to School Day event?

  • Walk to School Day is a fun and easy way to explore interest, build enthusiasm, and encourage students to walk to school.
  • When kids walk to school, they improve their health, gain independence and confidence, and arrive at school ready to learn.
  • Walk to School Day is a great energizing event, letting you connect your efforts with those of other students around the state, country, and world!
