Walk and Roll Wednesday!

 

Dear Adams Families,

 

Adams is participating in the May Walk+Roll to School Challenge and we need your help! The Walk+Roll to School Challenge is a month-long encouragement event in which students are encouraged to use active transportation such as walking or bicycling to and from school. Our goal is to encourage as many students as possible to increase their physical activity by using active transportation modes like walking, biking, scooting, skating, etc. This year we have great incentives and prizes to encourage our students to get active!

 

Adams is participating in the Walk + Roll Challenge on May 15th! Event details are below:

 

Students walking, rolling, bussing, and carpooling to school will receive participation incentives as well as being entered in a raffle for some awesome prizes!

 

For some families, it really is too far to walk to school every day. Don’t worry, your family can still participate in the Walk+Roll to School Challenge. If you live a long distance from school, you can Park and Stride instead. This involves parking a 10 minute (or more) walk away from school and walking the rest of the way with your child.

 

Want to help with this year’s Walk+Roll to School Challenge? Please contact Celina Johnson Hess at celivgh@gmail.com or 541-520-7619

 

Walking and rolling to and from school is an excellent way to add physical activity into your child’s daily routine. Kids need at least sixty minutes of physical activity every day to keep them healthy – and many kids in Oregon just don’t get enough. Positive experiences gained through walking and bicycling to school will pave the way for being physically active throughout life.

 

Thanks again for helping encourage healthy habits in our school community. We couldn’t do it without you.

Principal Kevin
