Was That a BEAR I Saw Walking to School?

Yes!! We were very excited to have the Ride Share Bear walking to school with us this morning! The Bear met us at the Decatur Housing Authority and walked with the children and Principal, Mrs. Watson, to Glennwood Elementary for International Walk & Roll Day.

It was great weather and the City Schools are reporting record numbers of walkers and bikers. We are so proud of our community pulling together to make this day a BIG success. Renfroe Middle School had over 500 children walk today!
