Walk to School day is this coming Wednesday (October 9). Is your children's school participating? Check here to see.
If you school doesn't already have something planned, don't worry, it is not too late to still take part in this international event!
How can you and your kids participate in the 2013 Walk to School?
1. Walk from home. This is great for students and families who live close enough to walk to school on a safe route.
How it’s done: Encourage students and their families to walk to school. They might join other families and form groups in their neighborhoods to travel to school together.
2. Walk from a designated starting point. This is great for families who live too far to walk, families with limited routes for walking, bus riders and children with disabilities.
How it’s done: Identify one or more locations where students and their families will gather to walk or bike to school together or where families can park and make their way to school when they’re ready.
3. Walk at school. This is great for families who live too far to walk, have limited routes for walking, bus riders, children with disabilities or times when few parents can participate with this children.
How it’s done: Walk at school during an assembly, recess or as part of a class activity. These events can foster a lifelong appreciation for walking nd develop important safety skills. They’re also the easiest way to include every student.
