Walk & Roll to School

 In October! Please look at the calendar for the date!

The annual celebration of International Walk and Roll to School Day is scheduled for 7:30–8:40 am at King Middle School at the corner of Rose and Grant.

How Do you Get to School?  

Try transit, walking (for at least 3 blocks) or biking


What To Do

  • Have your child walk, scooter, bike, bus or carpool  to school. Join a bike train, the morning run, or a friend from the neighborhood.
  • Contact friends and neighbors to start something that could work all year. The schedule and frequency can be whatever you need and can work out. Autonomous kids mean more time for you!

We need volunteers to make the event happen! Please watch the King E-Tree for calls for volunteers and help us make this quick and fun event take off again this year!

Volunteers can help with the following easy tasks:

– Help operate the Mode Chart, during which we will give sticker dots to be marked by each participating kid showing how they got to school and recording the approximate distance they traveled by alternative means. After the event we will calculate the reduced Greenhouse Gas Impact of the school’s combined commute!

Hope to see you by the big tree on Rose and Grant!
