Make a Plan for Walk to School Day – Oct. 7

childrens-walking-shoes-fzurmpmlCulver City Schools will join schools from around the world to participate in International Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 7, 2015.

Approximately 4,500 students from all CCUSD elementary schools and Culver City Middle School will be walking and rolling along with parents, teachers and community leaders, joining thousands of schools and millions of kids around the world celebrating the benefits of active transportation.

Each event is slightly different, but in general school activities will begin at approximately 8:00 a.m. with kids, parents and community leaders walking from meetup sites throughout Culver City. Walkers and bicyclists will arrive at the school by 8:30. Other special activities associated with the walk include welcome tables with free goodies for the kids and possibly even a raffle.

Walk to School Day events raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and concern for the environment. The events build connections between families, schools and the broader community.

The event is being organized by the Culver City Walk & Rollers as part of the Culver City Safe Routes to School Program. The city-wide program encourages children to walk, bike, skate, scoot and carpool to school more often.
