Walk to School Wednesdays

Hands-on environmental curriculum

A recent study found that of schools with a hands-on environmental curriculum, 100% had improved behavior, attendance, and attitudes, 77% had improved standardized test scores, and 93% of the educators noted positive impact on the learning environment.

In just one generation, the number of students who walk or ride their bikes to school each day has plummeted 70%, while childhood obesity rates have tripled! Walk to School Wednesdays encourages students to walk, wheel or ride their bike to school through the use of contests and positive reinforcement. Not only is this great for their health, it also reduces traffic snarls, cuts down on the amount of carbon emissions, and is a fabulous time to bond with your child!
