Walk to School logoOctober is International Walk to School Month! Let’s celebrate by walking or riding our bikes to school the week of October 6-10th.

Why “Walk or Ride” to School?

  • Promote physical activity and strong health
  • Protect the environment by reducing auto gas emissions
  • Promote biking and walking safety


The week-long celebration will include:

  • “Safety” Monday: Kick-off the week by wearing yellow or orange safety colors to school! Teachers and parents should review biking/walking safety tips with students.
  • “Earth Friendly” Tuesday: Wear green to school as a tribute to the environment.
  • “High Energy” Wednesday: Students are encouraged to bring a healthy snack/lunch to school and eat healthy foods throughout the day. Wear Central’s school colors ( Red / White ) or Centralwear / Spiritwear — to show your “energy”.
  • “Hats off to Exercise” Thursday: Students may wear a hat to school to celebrate the importance of exercise.
  • Early Release Day Friday: Join us in Lombard for a free roller skating party.
