Today is Walk and Roll to School Day! 

Leave the car at home and help the kids walk, ride a bike, scooter, or skate to school on Wednesday. We’re having a raffle at the morning assembly for everyone who participates.  Remember to have kids bring their colored “sneaker” drawing they received in their Friday Folder to hang on the poster at school. 

For more information how to make it safe, convenient, and fun for children to bicycle and walk to school, click here.
