Walking Wednesday

"Remember the thrill of riding a bike for the first time or walking to school that first day?  When walking or biking, parents and children get to appreciate things they don’t notice while driving—listening to the sounds of the neighborhood, seeing friends and neighbors and feeling connected with their community. Parents, children and friends can enjoy one another’s company without the usual distractions.

Walking and bicycling events celebrate these experiences and help make them possible for others. They bring schools and communities together for a common purpose. Most of all, they are fun!"  (Walk Bike to School)    Please contact Carlos Coontz or Coach Mark Dwake for further information about our program.  Please check out the following link regarding Hillrise:  Walking School Bus
