Walking School Bus route leaders wanted on Friday mornings!

Seeking Bagley parents to be Walking School Bus leaders, just one morning each week!   

How does a Walking School Bus work?  Students are picked up by volunteer leaders along a set Walking School Bus route - note that the bus doesn't stop, so kids need to be waiting - and delivered safely to the Daniel Bagley playground with lots of time to play before the first bell.  We are planning to start the program with Friday mornings each week (exception: the Southeast route will be Thursdays).  Can you help?

We're looking for at least two parents for each group (front and back of lines), will be ensuring safe routes, and are providing fluorescent safety vests for volunteers. September will be our test period, probably starting September 16 , where we'll be adjusting routes and times.  Come and walk with us to try it out.

Five great reasons to walk to school:
  • Keeps our kids healthy
  • Builds our community
  • Reduces traffic around the school
  • Better for our children’s planet
  • Makes our kids happy
For routes and program information, see the map (link at the sidebar, too), or email Lexy or Brooke.

p.s.  Mark the date:  October 5 is International Walk to School Day, and our OFFICIAL Walking School Bus kick-off!
