International Walk to School Day

J.F.K. participated in International Walk to School Day on Oct. 7. The event features communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 and has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school. Thousands of schools across America – from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico – participate every October.

Mark your Calendars! The Walk to School Day dates for 2016 and 2017 have been set: October 5, 2016 and October 4, 2017.
