Walk to School DayWalk to School Day 2014

Walk to School Day is October 5th! Come WALK Come ALL!

Join the 2500 schools nationwide as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of WALK TO SCHOOL DAY!  Our theme this year is walking safety and physical fitness.  We also have two speakers that will entertain and educate the kids at recess.

Students who typically ride the bus are encouraged to try to walk to school on October 5th.  Try to arrange a route from your bus stop.... Gather the entire bus stop and walk together as a group!  There is safety in numbers! Please only cross at major intersections and crosswalks.  Adults are needed as we don't have extra crossing guards for this event and safety is of the utmost importance! 

We plan to have signs and volunteers to cheer the walkers along some major walking routes and the Wildcat will be at the front door to greet everyone!  The kids will also get stickers to recognize their participation.

At recess, there will be two speakers.  Former NBA All Star and Hall of Famer Adrian Dantly will be talking to the kids about the importance of physical fitness and walking safety.  In his retirement, he is a crossing guard in Montgomery County.  In addition, Tim Guinan, an internationally ranked obstacle course competitor, will create an obstacle course for the kids  to test their skills.
Come join the fun!  We need enthusiastic cheerers, photographers, sticker volunteers and lunch/recess help.  Or would YOU like to be the Wildcat?  A sign up genius was sent out via Woodnet to volunteer.  Or feel free to contact Shari Cantor if you would like to volunteer or have any further questions.
