OCTOBER IS WALK TO SCHOOL MONTH
Redmond SchoolPool is excited to partner with Norman Rockwell, encouraging students to walk, bike, carpool, or ride the school bus to get to school October 3-31.
How does it work?
1. Each student will receive a calendar to bring home today. Your student should keep the calendar until October 31.
2. Every week that your student walks, bikes, carpools (with another student) or rides the bus to school (at least 1 time), mark the calendar.
3. Wednesday October 4th, walk to school with your student(s). Be sure to stop by the flag pole to receive a special give a way and meet with Special Guests!
4. Parents should complete the back of the calendar with contact information so they can receive rewards for their students.
5. Please turn calendars in to the main office by
6. Each returned completed card earns the PTA $10,
up to $2,500 for the school!
Thank you for contributing to the success of Redmond SchoolPool. Together we will reduce traffic congestion, raise money for your school, and promote healthy habits.
