Walk to School Day!

Start making plans to walk, bike or scoot to school on Wednesday October 9, 2013.

Why Walk or Bike?

Communities and schools are using Walk or Bike to School Day as the first step to change community culture and to create options for getting around that are more inviting for everyone, both young and old. Here are some reasons to support walking and bicycling to school:

It’s Fun!

Walking and bicycling bring a sense of joy and independence.

Healthier Habits

The trip to school is a chance for children (and adults!) to get the physical activity they need.

Cleaner Environment

Replacing car trips to school with walking or bicycling can reduce congestion and air-polluting emissions.

Promoting Safety

Building sidewalks, providing education programs and adding traffic calming measures are some of the ways to improve safety. Encouraging walking and bicycling to school can help build support for infrastructure improvements in the broader community.

Community Benefits

Reducing traffic congestion, boosting a sense of community, and improving neighborhood connections benefit the community.

Anderson Teachers FIT CLUB

Anderson has 6 teachers participating in the 100 mile club and another group meeting in the music room for after school fitness.  Having teachers model healthy habits is critical in having a healthy school environment.

Anderson Participates in JAM

Anderson participated in the JAM World Record today.  It is a FUN campaign to rally EVERYONE to pause and take just a minute for a fitness break. This campaign is dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of making activity a daily habit, ensuring our kids learn healthy habits at a young age and our schools have access to quality physical education programs.
EVERYONE, people of all ages and abilities, can participate in THIS world record and make a difference.
