Walk To School Days



What if we could do something that helps students arrive at school ready to learn? And helps strengthen connections between families and the school? And helps children get some of the physical activity they need every day while fostering skills they’ll use for a lifetime? Well, that's the idea behind the extremely popular walk to school days at East Side.  


Remember, walking or biking to school has lots of benefits, including: 

  • It is fun.

  • Physical activity helps children build strong bones, muscles and joints, and decreases the risk of obesity.

  • It creates stronger communities by bringing neighbors together. 

  • It creates stronger communities by bringing neighbors together.

  • It helps reduce the amount pollution emitted by cars.

There are several days planned throughout the school year, and you'll notice that more and more families participate with each opportunity. The kids LOVE them, and it gives parents precious time with our kiddos that we sometimes don't get as a result of the fast-paced world that we live in.
