Tanglewood Elementary's successful Safe Walk to School Day
Kudos to Tanglewood School and the Office of Sustainability!
This from the Lee County Office of Sustainability's Facebook page:
Congratulations to Tanglewood Elementary for a successful Safe Walk to School Day last week. The Office of Sustainability helped them find an alternate, safer route than used in years past. Almost 200 kids and 30 parents participated. With the proper training and supervision, walking to school is an excellent way to get kids moving!
NOTE: The key to making it safe for kids to walk to school--building walkable neighborhood schools! Read the Streetsblog 10/10/11 article: "Sidewalks Alone Can’t Solve the Suburban Megaschools’ Walking Problem".
