Walk/Bike to School Day

WBTSD_2inch_ColorEach year, Shepherd proudly participates in International Walk to School Day in October and National Bike/Walk to School Day in May.

This year, International Walk to School Day was held on Wednesday, October 2, 2019. Many students, parents, and staff participated in Shepherd’s annual Walk to School Day celebration this year.

International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration – with record breaking participation – each October. Today, thousands of schools across America – from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico – participate every October.
