Join Augusta Circle Elementary in celebrating International Walk to School Day on October 5, 2016. Take some time this week to promote health, safety and the environment by walking with your child to school – or just simply taking a walk together.

Children need 60 minutes of exercise every day to stay healthy. Walking or riding a bike to school is a great way to jump-start your morning. Join you ACE neighbors and friends on October 5 as we walk and ride to school.

Walking to school with your child is a great way to start the day! If you live too far from your child’s school to walk, here’s what you can do: Drive part of the distance, then park and walk the rest of the way. Check Fast Facts for all the meeting stations around the area so you can participate in a fun morning walking and riding bikes to school on October 5.

Walking and wheeling to school helps teach children valuable safety skills. Learn more details at www.saferoutesinfo.org or www.walkbiketoschool.org. Try out your knowledge on October 5 when we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of International Walk to School Day.
