If you were anywhere near Kings Highway Elementary School this morning, you saw an unusual sight:
Kids walking to school.
The newsworthy activity comes courtesy of International Walk to School Day. Begun in 1997, it’s now a movement in over 40 countries. Students (and teachers!) walk and bike to school on the same day. The goal is to highlight the need for safe routes.
This is the 4th year Kings Highway has participated.
On a perfect fall day, over 200 youngsters took part.
And, of course — this being 2017 — everyone who walked to school got a certificate.
