Submitted by kali.brown on Fri, 10/02/2015 - 19:27

Wednesday, October 7, 2015 is International Walk to School Day at Spanish Oaks Elementary!  Please join us in promoting healthy habits of exercise, being outdoors and walking/bike safety.  Students, staff and faculty are invited to wear GREEN this day to help us remember to walk/bike safely.  Parent helpers will be strategically placed along the way to school, watching for students who are following the safety rules and making healthy choices.

"International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day.  It began in 1997 as a one-day event.  Over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration – with record breaking participation – each October.  Today, thousands of schools across America – from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico – participate every October." 

Come join us and wear GREEN as you ... Walk/Bike to School!
