International Walk to School Week

Great job participating in International Walk to School week, Maple Grove! A number of classes reported an increase of students who walked at least two blocks, biked or rode the bus last week. It was a wonderful way to celebrate this important and healthy way to build community. A special thank you to the Walk to School Ambassadors and the Global Citizenship Club for encouraging teachers and families to walk to school. Just because Walk to School week is over, doesn’t mean you need to stop walking. Keep our air cleaner and the streets around our school clear by walking a few blocks whenever you can.
