Walk to School Day
Manatee Elementary School will be having a Walk to School Day on October 5, 2011. Ms. Best and Mr. Bartlett will be at Eastwind Park at 7:15am if any students and their parents would like to join us in a walk to school that morning. To allow us enough time to get to school on time we will be leaving the park at 7:30am. Walk to School Day is designed to remind both parents and students of the pleasure of walking to school but it has other benefits as well, including:
- Provide students with physical activity, which can help alleviate health problems
- Ease traffic congestion in and around schools
- Serve as a catalyst to increase walking and bicycling on a permanent basis
- Give parents an opportunity to identify any hazards or dangers along their child's route to school
We hope to see a big turnout for this important event. Even if you drive your child to school you can drive to the park and meet us there for the walk. Just go south ½ mile on Tavistock Dr. past the car loop entrance. Remember every little bit of physical activity helps.
