Walk to School Day 2009

This Lapwai, Idaho school's inaugural Walk to School Event was a huge success! A "walking school bus" was organized in the morning for older students and a mid-morning walk was organized for students age 0-5 years old. Teachers, parents, grandparents, tribal programs, city officials, local police, and tribal leaders all walked with these young students.


Walk to School Day 2009

On Wed., Oct. 8th, 2009, New York City's PS 169 celebrated Walk to School Day. The entire school community, consisting of students, teachers, administrators, and parents, walked around the block waving signs created by the students in art class. Each individual sign gave a reason why walking to school is good for you. It was an exciting event that will long be remembered by the school community and our neighbors in Bay Terrace.
