Georgia Walk & Roll to School Day is March 4

The City of Decatur will be participating in GA Walk & Roll to School Day on Wednesday, March 4. In 2014 wehad almost 50% of our children participate in this annual event, even though it was a very cold day!

GA Walk & Roll Day is part of the state’s Safe Routes to School program and all of our elementary schools, Renfroe Middle School, St Thomas More School and College Heights all take part. Children take part in “walking school buses” and bike trains” with parents and learn how much fun it is to walk to school as well as get some exercise.

Decatur has had an active SRTS prgoram since 2005. During the 2008-2009 nschool year, the Decatur Active LIving Division took on the management and development of Decatur’s program.

Special thanks to all the wonderful Parent School Champions who make this possible by volunteering their time, energy and creativity to make this a success!
