September Walk and Roll Club

Are you ready to unleash your inner superhero? 
Then join our monthly 
Walk and Roll Fridays by walking or cycling to school. 
You too can be a superhero when you leave the car at home which improves health, the environment, and even grades!  

Join us on
Friday, September 21st
for our
Superhero Walk and Roll Club

What is the Netcong 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 which leads to improved test scores

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 children walk or bike together. 

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.
