October Walk and Roll Club


On some days do you feel sluggish? That your brain is not working? Do you feel like a fog takes over and you need a survival plan to get moving? Then YOU need to leave the car at home and JOIN our October Zombie Walk and Roll to School.

Join us on
Friday, October 19th
for our
ZOMBIE WALK



3 Ways Zombies and Netcong Students are alike:

1. They love BRAINS so they protect their head by wearing a helmet when they bike, skateboard, scooter, etc.

2. They never cross the street while using a phone. Zombies and Netcong students know that phones make you lose focus and are distracting and so they put them away (and tell their parents to do the same while driving).

3. They WALK everywhere because knowing how to safely walk places is important for survival. Have you ever seen zombie parents drive? Those parents are on their phones instead of paying attention to the road which reduces brain function by as much as a third.

Netcong Elementary students who walk or bike to school will receive a backpack charm. Charms will be handed out in front of the school by the flag pole before the 8:15 am bell. 

Students can walk from home or join our walking bus which leaves from the Netcong Train Station at 7:55 am. The walking bus is a great way to meet other parents and have students walk or bike together. It's also not just for walking. Ride your bike, wear a helmet, bring a lock and pick up a celebratory backpack charm when you get to school.

Once you get the hang of walking or bicycling, try it every day.

Tips for Unleashing the Safety Superhero Inside of You!

  • Cross the street at the crosswalks where there is a crossing guard on duty.
  • When crossing the street: Stop, Look Left-Right-Left Again and Over your Shoulder before crossing the street. Keep watching for turning vehicles as you cross.
  • Do not cross the street between parked cars. 
  • Parents, put your phone away when driving. Even hands-free is a dangerous distraction and puts our kids at risk. Don't do it!
Bike racks are located at the back of the school. Wear a helmet, bring a lock and come around to the front of the school to pick up a celebratory backpack charm.

April Earth Day Walk and Roll Club

Join us
Friday, April 20
for the 
Earth Day Walk and Roll Club
Plus Enter To Win a 20" Huffy Rock It Bike!



Make every day Earth Day by walking and biking 
instead of driving to school.

Every step counts towards reducing negative impacts on our school's air quality.  When we drive we burn fossil fuels that releases gases and chemicals into the air causing air pollution. 

Air pollution from idling cars make asthma symptoms worse and trigger attacks. Studies show the air quality inside schools is worse at arrival and dismissal times. 

Take steps to protect 
Netcong student's health 
by walking and bicycling today!


Walk or bike on your own or meet us at the 
Netcong Train Station at 7:55 am to join our walking bus.

Charms will be handed out in front of the school by the flag pole.

We're getting ready for our Bike Rodeo on Friday May 4th.

for the
Turkey Trot Walk and Roll Club




We are thankful for another Walk and Roll Club!

Food for Thought:
As you get ready for a day of family, fun and food consider this, 15 minutes of walking at a moderate pace uses about 100 calories. If you walked 15 minutes each way to and from school every day for a week, you would use an extra 1000 calories. 

Happy Thanksgiving!
