Walk to School Day
Oct 2 @ 7:30 am – 8:00 am

International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration – with record breaking participation – each October. Today, thousands of schools across America – from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico – participate every October.

Join Kentwood in celebrating the true community school that it is and walk to school on October 2!

PS. Interested in having your child’s walk to school posted on the Kentwood website? Email (brianne.gilbert@lmu.edu) or text (310-321-8882) Bri Gilbert with your best pic!
