Walk & Bike to School Day is October 10

Many Wilson families already enjoy the benefits of walking or biking to school:

  • Kids arrive alert and ready to learn.
  • Families build healthy habits together and practice everyday skills like reading street signs and discerning when to cross safely.
  • Families can skip the carpool queue.
On Wednesday, October 10, join kids and adults around the world to celebrate the benefits of walking and bicycling.

Can you help? Between 7:45 and 8:20 am, we’ll greet people who walk or bike in front of the school with stickers and fresh fruit. Please sign up to help as a greeter or bring a healthy snack to share:

Live too far away to walk? Park your car at a nearby nonprofit partner and walk 3‑5 blocks to school with your kid(s). See the map in your Thursday folder for locations.
