Elsmere Walk to School Day is Oct. 4

Filed in Elsmere by on September 27, 2017

Elsmere Elementary School will participate in Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 4.

Elsmere students and families, supported by the Bethlehem Bicycle & Pedestrian Committee, will join schools from around the world to celebrate International Walk to School Day, which emphasizes the importance of increasing physical activity, pedestrian and bicycle safety, and a healthy environment.

Parents are encouraged to join their children on a walk or bike to school. If possible wear bright and/or reflective clothing (or Bethlehem orange spirit wear!).

When walking, remember to:

  • walk on sidewalks if available,
  • use crosswalks whenever possible, and
  • walk on the LEFT hand side of the road facing traffic if no sidewalks are available.

Arrive a few minutes early:

  • Greeters will distribute stickers/goodies for kids who walk or ride to Elsmere on that day. 

Students attending School’s In You are welcome to participate. When you arrive just let a School’s In staff member know that your child(ren) walked to school. At around 9:00 a.m., a School’s In staff member will take those students outside to join in the celebration.
