Walk & Roll Wednesdays
Join the fun on Walk and Roll to School Day!
WHAT IT IS
On the first Wednesday* of the month the Malcolm X community celebrates Walk & Roll to School Day. This is a great opportunity to celebrate our health, the environment, and our school spirit. Spare the environment and reduce morning stress for yourself. Connect with other families who live in your neighborhood. Try a new way to get to school!
* May's Walk & Roll Day will be held on Thursday to align with Bike to Work Day
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
If you live nearby, meet up with neighbors and friends to walk or ride to school together. Allow plenty of time for walking and enjoying the morning festivities. Or just walk or bike with your child on your own schedule. If you live farther away, bike with your child, take the bus with your child and walk from the bus stop, carpool with another family, or park and walk.
When you get to school, stop by the picnic tables for a school-wide mode chart (the dots) to see how we get to school. Some months there will be a little "prize" -- a sticker, pencil, or healthy snack. Everyone is welcome, even if they weren't able to walk or roll that day.
