Walk To School Wednesday happens RAIN or SHINE :) :)

Some things we have done so far include:

  • W2SW (Walk to School Wednesdays) – promoting healthy regular walking to school
  • Entertaining programs for students as well as for parents/adults with fast and fun ways to eat well and exercise (Fun Family Olympics; Healthy Holidays and” Kid Power!”, to name a few!)
  • Improved food based celebration guidelines for parents and staff at school
  • Community School Garden, with fresh vegetables grown by students and staff
  • Indoor Fitness Trail inside the school hallways
  • Skate Time roller skating curriculum for 3 weeks in school, so kids can learn the basics and skate safely in town as well

See what we have done :)
