Hoppin’ From A to B
with Walk to School Day on Wednesday October 7, 2020
Get Your Students Moving
Walk to school month is an opportunity to spend time outside and encourage kids, students, families, and school communities to be active on the way to school.
Sign up for Walktober to help promote healthy living, and start conversations about the environment.
Participate in a Way That Works For You
Participating can be as simple as promoting walking and biking through school announcements, in-class activities, hosting a school-wide walk, or coming to an event we’re hosting just for you.
When you register, you’ll receive a full kit of activities and access to workshops to help get your students moving. The programming will work from the classroom or at home!
Kids, families, classes and school can participate in a way that works for them.
Encourage Healthy Living
Biking, walking and wheeling to school is a great way for kids to get more physical activity and time outdoors
Help the Planet
Active school travel reduces car trips – this reduces our carbon footprint, cuts back on greenhouse gas emissions, and improves air quality.
Kids who are active on the way to school have better concentration, supporting a healthy classroom environment and improving kid’s school experiences
