April Walk and Roll Club


Join us on 
Friday, April 28th
for the
Every Step Counts 
Walk and Roll!

Make Earth Day everyday by 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 can make asthma symptoms worse and trigger attacks. Studies show the air quality around schools is worse at arrival and dismissal times. 

Take steps to help protect Netcong students health 
from air pollution and walk and bike today!


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

Students who walk or bike to school receive a backpack charm. 
Charms will be handed out in front of the school by the flag pole.

You did it folks! Your participation in this program helped us win a  Safe Routes to School grant from the state. Let's celebrate our grant award by walking and bicycling to school,
State Announces Safe Routes to School Grants — Chatham and Netcong Receive Awards






March Walk and Roll Club



Join us on 
Friday, March 24th 
for the
March of the Penguins Walk and Roll!

There may still be snow on the ground, but Spring is here 
and the 
Netcong Walk and Roll Club 
is back in action!





It may still be a bit chilly, but don't let that slow you down. Every March, emperor penguins march up to 70 miles on the ice.  However, you don't have to march far to get to school. Walk or bike or march on your own or meet us at the Netcong Train Station at 7:55 am to join our walking bus.

Students who walk or bike to school receive a backpack charm. 
Charms will be handed out in front of the school by the flag pole.


What is the Walk and Roll Club?

On Walk and Roll Fridays, students and parents are encouraged to leave the car at home and take walk or ride a bike to school . . .
  • for health
  • for the environment
  • for safer streets 
  • for arriving awake and ready to learn

Attention parents and students, our crossing guards are there to help you. All students must cross the street at the crosswalk where there is a crossing guard on duty. Crossing between parked cars is dangerous, don't do it. 

Bike racks are located at the back of the school by the Board of Education building. Wear a helmet, bring a lock and come around to the front of the school to pick up a celebratory backpack charm.

November Turkey Trot Walk and Roll to School


Join us on 
Friday, November 18
for the
Turkey Trot Walk & Roll Club




We are thankful for another Walk and Roll Club!

Join us for the Turkey Trot Walk and Roll to School by walking or bicycling to school. 
Don't use a car, it's not that far. 

Walk or bike on your own or meet us at the Netcong Train Station at 7:55 am to join our walking bus. 
Netcong Elementary students who walk or bike to school on Walk and Roll Fridays will receive a backpack charm. Charms will be handed out in front of the school by the flag pole. Although this is our last Walk and Roll event until March, keep on walking and rolling throughout the winter.  

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!
