International 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.
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).
Mark you calendar and start planning your routes!
