Walk To School Week

Start the school day off on the right foot by walking or biking to school! Join our walking school bus! Teachers will be on Palmer Avenue, near Walters, at 8:25am each morning April 18-21; meet them there and continue onto Central School. This spring we'd love to recognize the crossing guards who do so much every day to keep us safe! Please write a thank-you note to your crossing guard and hand it to them when you walk to school. Show them how much we ap- preciate them!We will also be holding a daily raffle for all walkers throughout the week for ZAPPOS gift cards. New shoes are always fun to walk in!
