    The World is Walking Walk and Roll Club

    The World is Walking  for 
    International Walk and Bike to School Day 



    Wednesday, October 7


    International Walk and Bike to School Day gives children, parents, school teachers and community leaders an opportunity to be part of a global event as they celebrate the many benefits of walking and bicycling. Walkers and cyclists from around the world walk and bike to school together for various reasons — all hoping to create communities that are safe places to walk and bike.

    Our Goal: No cars at drop-off! 

    This month's safety tip: Be safe on Halloween
    Be Visible: Always use a flash light, include reflective gear as an added bonus.
    Be Safe: Plan ahead what routes you will take, choose well lit roads with slower traffic.
    Cross Streets Safely: Stop at the curb and look left, right and left again for traffic.

    Why walk or bike to school?
    There are multiple benefits of walking and bicycling including:
    • increasing physical activity
    • teaching safe pedestrian and bicycling skills to students
    • awareness of how walkable and bikeable our community is and where improvements can be made
    • reducing traffic congestion, pollution and motor vehicle speed near schools
    • arriving awake and ready to learn which leads to improved test scores
