Mission Statement

Why walk/bike to school? • It’s Fun! o Walking and bicycling bring a sense of joy and independence. • Healthier Habits o The trip to school is a chance for children (and adults!) to get the physical activity they need. o Increase activity leads to better concentration, improving academic performance. • Cleaner Environment o Replacing car trips to school with walking or bicycling can reduce congestion and air-polluting emissions. • Promoting Safety o Building sidewalks, providing education programs, and adding traffic calming measures are some of the ways to improve safety. Encouraging walking and bicycling to school can help build support for infrastructure improvements in the broader community. • Community Benefits o Reducing traffic congestion, boosting a sense of community, and improving neighborhood connections benefit the community. o Saves the school district money.
