Walk To School Day - Feb. 6

Outdoor adventure club
Washburn's Outdoor Adventure Club supports walk to school day. They meet Fridays at 8 am in the media center.

Winter Walk Day is February 6! Join us in a citywide event! Minneapolis Public Schools students and staff will be participating in Walk and BIke to School on February 6!

Did you know that kids who walk or bike to school perform significantly better during the school day on tasks demanding concentration?

Let’s heat up our MINDS on WINTER WALK DAY, part of MPS Winter Wellness Week! We will celebrate Minnesota winter and winter walkers—regular, occasional, or even first timers! All students who walk to school will receive a I WALKED sticker and be entered into a drawing for great prizes. Usually drive?  Park away from the school and walk from there. Can’t walk to school? Minneapolis Parks has FREE ICE SKATING at 25 parks citywide, many with warming houses and FREE LOANER SKATES.  For all the MPS Winter Wellness  Week activities see http://cws.mpls.k12.mn.us/winter_wellness_week.  

Parents remain responsible for getting children to and from school safely.
