International Walk to School Day – Wed Oct 7th

Elmdale will be celebrating International Walk to School (IWALK) Day on Wednesday, October 7th!

Please join us in the primary yard starting at 8:45am to help us celebrate.

Students are encouraged to walk to school in any way they can – even part of the way is great! For example, students could be part of a walking school bus, walk to school with a friend from the closest crossing guard, or even walk to and from their bus stop.

Students are also encouraged to scooter, bike or skateboard – helmets are strongly recommended.

IWALK Day is celebrated around the world on the first Wednesday in October. Schools in Canada have been celebrating IWALK since October 2000.

IWALK’s themes include: increasing daily physical activity, improving safety, enhancing the environment, developing community cohesion, promoting social interaction and reducing traffic congestion, pollution and vehicle speed near schools.
