GA Walk & Roll Day is Tomorrow, March 7

 

Glennwood 1

On Wednesday, March 7, children in the City Schools of Decatur will participate in the annual Georgia Walk & Roll to School Day. In 2017, over 1500 children in Decatur participated by walking or rolling to school. Let’s beat that number in 2018!

Did you know?
Decatur has had an active Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program since 2005.

The program won the Golden Shoe Award from PEDS for Pedestrian Friendly School System.

In 2008 the Decatur Active Living Division took on the management and development of Decatur’s program.

Thanks to our wonderful parent “school champions” who keep the children motivated to walk or bike to school. Parents not only encourage children to participate in the program, but offer walking  school buses on special walk days and greet the children at the school with incentive items such as bracelets and stickers.

Be on the lookout for our walkers and rollers and drive safely!
