iWalk to school week is Oct 3-7

iwalk_tagline_colorInternational Walk (iWalk) to School Week will take place October 3rd-7th  at DL this year. This week long event gives children, parents, school teachers and community leaders an opportunity to be part of a global event to celebrate the many benefits of walking or otherwise getting to school in active ways. We at DL would like to be a part of iWalk to promote health and community around our school as well as reducing emissions.

 We encourage you to get creative and find ways to get to school without driving up to the front steps or down one of our busy side streets. If you must drive, consider arranging to meet a group and walk in, make a plan to carpool with another family, or just park a 5-10 minute walk away. Your school and your body will thank you for it!

During iWalk week, Volunteer Parents will hand out orange paper tokens* to each child who walks, bikes, scooters, carpools, parks away from the school and walks in, takes the bus, rides a bike etc. These tokens will be collected by their teacher and recorded in each classroom. The classroom that collects the most tokens will win the coveted Golden Scooter (our iWalk Trophy).

*Tokens can be picked up either near the front entrance of the school or at the playground closest to the MPR.

Mark you calendar and start planning your routes!

Volunteers Parents  – can you spare 15 minutes one morning to hand out tokens? If yes, please contact us at emaildlpac@gmail.com (shift is only 8:30-8:45 any day of the week, you choose).
