Famous Friday Walking School Bus

09/23/2015 1:52 pm

Fall is upon us, and that means our Famous Friday Walking School Bus will be starting up again! Every student that joins the walking school bus will receive a punch card to keep on their backpack. Each week they will earn a punch, and when they get all 5 punches they will be able to turn it in for a prize. 

Come join the walking school bus every Friday morning starting September 25 at 7:25 in front of St Leo's Church (corner of N Tilson and W Hamlin). Parents, please use the church parking lot to drop your children off.

October 1st - 30th starts the Fire Up Your Feet Challenge. More information can be found at fireupyourfeet.org.

October 5th - 9th is also the Coulee Region Walk to School Challenge. We will have an extra (special) walking school bus on Wednesday October 7th for International Walk to School Day! 
Logs for the challenge will be sent home for everyone to participate. Please return logs to Mrs. Ellerbach once they are filled out and completed. There is an option to walk at school if your child(ren) rides the bus and would still like to participate in the challenge. 

The Walking School Bus will be running until November 20th - every Friday we have school for the Fall.  It will then start back up in March for spring.
