Walk to School Wednesdays are an effort to make walking to school part of the routine for all students.

Roosevelt Elementary School students join us for weekly Walk to School Wednesday events. Students walk, bike, scooter, or skateboard to school... parents and pets are welcome, too!

Every walker has their own tally card tracking their participation in Walk to School Wednesday.

Tally cards help us keep track of individual walkers, too. When walkers complete rows on their cards, they win prizes!

At the end of each month, the class with the highest number of total walkers wins a prize basket of playground toys: balls, jump ropes, hula hoops, chalk and more! Prizes are donated by the Roosevelt PTA and delivered to the classrooms.
