Local Elementary Schools Celebrate Walk To School Day

Local Elementary Schools Celebrate Walk To School Day

October 25, 2014 

Lee’s Summit recently participated in Walk and Bike to School Day on October 8, 2014. The Partnership for a Walkable America sponsored the first National Walk Our Children to School Day in Chicago in 1997 and it has grown into an international event.

Meadow Lane, Westview, Longview Farm Elementary, Voy Spears, and Chapel Lakes Elementary schools celebrated this event by walking to school.  Longview Farm Elementary had the largest turnout with 400 participants.   “The parents enjoy the walk because it allows them to spend time with their child but still allows them to return home and be at work on time! Kids love it because it is an alternative for them to get to school,” says Dr. Rostine Longview Farm Elementary Principle.

The teachers and staff at Longview Farm Elementary helped making the event a success by encouraging participation and even participating themselves.  Dr. Rostine says “We look forward to the walk each year because it allows us to spend time together as a school community and gives us great exercise!”
  
Mark your calendars for 2015 Walk and Bike to School Day.  If your school is not involved, you can contact the school about future participation or the Livable Streets Advisory Board for ideas to make your event a success.
