Academy Elementary School students, staff and family members joined thousands of individuals across the globe in participating in this year’s International Walk to School Day in early October.

The annual event encourages students and their families to forgo traditional means of transportation and either walk or ride a bicycle to school. In addition to the environmental benefits associated with the event, it has been known to promote physical activity as well as reinforce lessons on pedestrian and bicycling safety.
