Walk and Roll to School Day!

Irving Families,

Tomorrow, Wednesday May 9th, is  Walk and Roll to School Day.  To celebrate, schools across Oregon are holding Walk and Roll events that challenge students, families and educators to walk, bike or scoot to school.  These challenges are a great reminder of the benefits of active transportation.  Try ditching the car tomorrow and celebrate your health, the environment, and school spirit.  Live too far to bike or walk to school?  Try parking the family car a few blocks from the school and walking the rest of the way.  You can even participate by walking to and from your school bus stop.  If students participate they need to check in at the table near the office to get a prize.  Hope to see many Irving families Walk and Roll to school tomorrow. 

Irving students who Walk and Roll to school on Wednesday May 9th will be entered into a drawing for prizes such as a scooter and other great prizes!
