International Walk to School Day

AW and MM will be participating, along with walkers and bikers from more than 40 countries, all celebrating on the same day! This started in 1997, and now has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school.

We want to get as many kids to walk or bike to school as possible! Parents, we need your help! Please organize a group in your neighborhood to walk or bike to school on Oct 5. We will need parent leaders to take kids to AW and to bring the kids home from school. MM kids will not need parents to escort, but will still need to be reminded of bike and pedestrian safety.

-Plan a safe route
- Remind bikers to walk their bikes across busy roads
- Stay together as a group
- Be sure that everyone who is riding a bike has on a bike helmet (including adults)!

As an added incentive, walkers and bikers will again get coupons for an ice cream cone at Dairy Queen. For more information or to volunteer, email Rachel Goodman at rgoodman58@comcast.net
