Let's Move is back in 2012-2013!

Let's Move, Bagley!

We're back in 2012, and are looking forward to another successful year of Moving on Friday mornings.  Last year more than 1/3 of the students participated in the Let's Move programs:
  • Walking School Bus routes are back
  • Kids can walk the track to earn points for the coveted Golden Sneakers (starting in October)
  • Celebrate walking and biking to school with hundreds of other countries on International Walk to School Day on October 3
... but we need volunteers!  Please email Amy or Brooke if you can help with any of these EASY jobs.

Walking School Bus
There are two active routes on the map: (one from the south, starting near the Phinney Center; one from the northeast, down Wallingford and across 88th).  

We are looking for more route leaders!  If you walk from the east (Starbucks area) or the north (Greenwood Park), let us know if you can help.

Walk the Track
Can you help count laps one Friday each month on the Bagley track?
Are you able to tally the totals and distribute charms (or other incentives) once each month?

Walk to School Day
Do you have time to help out on October 3 for iWalk Day/Let's Move kickoff?  We'll have groups walking together, track walking, and hand stamps for all participants. 

Seattle Kids' Marathon
Are you interested in finding out how we can incorporate the Kids' Marathon into Let's Move?  We'd love to coordinate.

New Bike Racks and other improvements
Can you help prepare an easy grant application for pedestrian and cyclist improvements at school?  We'll be writing this in October, and will need people to tally # bikes each day for a week or two.
