Walk On Wednesday ~ How It Works
You'll see the hard-working Healthy Lifestyle Committee at the school entrance on Wednesday mornings with their clipboards and pens in hand. They are monitoring the number of students who are walking to school.
The totals from each class are calculated and grouped into two categories: Junior Classes and Senior Classes.
The Junior and Senior classes with the most recorded walkers are announced and congratulated.
Maybe you could Walk On Wednesday too ~ there's always great pride in being the week's winning Class!
