Walk and Roll

Walk and Roll Wednesdays are off to a fantastic start! Our first W&R Wednesday was Sept. 3, and it was awesome! Enthusiastic 6th grade volunteers from Mrs. Hiatt’s and Mrs. Lyon’s classes sported the stylin’ orange shirts, and along with PT the Tiger (!!), greeted Walkers and Rollers with fun promotional materials provided to us by Safe Routes to School. And yes, Mrs. Olmsted DID walk to school. Our principal rocks! walkandroll

Last week’s Golden Sneaker Award winners were Mrs. Millea’s Kindergarten (100% participation!! whoo hoo!), Mrs. Gude-Dunbar’s class, and Mr. Swedenborg’s class. But the whole school did great, as we had 69% participation school-wide!

Walk and Roll Wednesday will happen EVERY Wednesday, and each week the Golden Sneakers are up for grabs for the classrooms with the highest percentage of participation. Go Tigers!
