Troost Elementary Walk to School Day
October 4, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 amFree
Remember the thrill of walking to school that first day? There’s a feeling of joy and independence, along with a sense of adventure when walking to school.
Join Troost Elementary as we participate in International Walk to School Day! This is a global event that involves communities, students, families and staff in a one-day event to encourage our children to try walking to school.
When walking, parents and children get to appreciate things they don’t notice while driving — listening to the sounds of the neighborhood, seeing friends and neighbors and feeling connected with their community. Parents, children and friends can enjoy one another’s company without the usual distractions.
Plus, walking to school incorporates regular physical activity into a child’s everyday routine. Most of all, it’s fun!
