Students walk to school with families, enjoy nature walk during P.E.
The 5th annual Walk to School Day is on Wednesday, Oct. 7. Students are encouraged to walk to school with family and friends in an effort to increase their physical activity in the morning. Teachers and staff will meet early in the morning at designated locations to walk to work, showing their support for the national day.
“Our district staff takes great pride in pursuing healthy lifestyles. We recognize the importance of setting positive examples in our students’ lives and helping them to make healthy choices,” said Matt Kociolek, Wellness Coordinator for District 146.
The students will participate in a nature walk during their Physical Education classes during the day. The nature walk will give students the opportunity to walk, talk with friends, relax and enjoy the outdoors as they complete a one-mile course. Students will be rewarded with a water bottle and apple.
