Prairie Hills celebrates Walk, Bike & Roll to School
In collaboration with the Prairie Hills PTO, Prairie Hills Elementary encouraged a healthy body and lifestyle by hosting participating in Walk, Bike & Roll To School day! We celebrated students with music at arrival, healthy treats, and prizes!
What is Walk, Bike & Roll To School day?
A national event can be an amazing impetus for change in communities. Through annual surveys, local Walk & Roll to School Day coordinators across the country have told us how a simple one-day event has led to great changes such as long-term walking and rolling programs, new sidewalks and pathways, and needed policy changes at schools and in communities. Improvements that normally take a long time to institute can happen quickly when city officials walk or roll to school with students and see firsthand what needs to be done.
The first National Walk & Roll to School Day—called Walk Our Children to School Day—was held in 1997. Since then, it’s come a long way. In May 2012, the first-ever National Bike & Roll to School Day—called Bike to School Day—was celebrated across the U.S. Join families, schools and communities as they walk and bicycle to school for these events each year.
