Germantown, Tennessee--October 3, 2018-- Germantown Municipal School District joins schools from around the world to celebrate Walk to School Day each year. Hundreds of students from Farmington Elementary, Dogwood Elementary, and Riverdale School walked and rolled to school on October 3, 2018 along with parents, teachers and community leaders. We spotted some school board members and some school mascots out on the sidewalks!
Walk to School Day events raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and concern for the environment. The events build connections between families, schools and the broader community.
GMSD Walk to School events are organized by amazing parent volunteers and school administration.
