Walking Wheeling Wednesday and Drive to 5

Walking Wheeling Wednesday and Drive to 5
Glen O is excited to restart the Walking Wheeling Wednesday program.  This is to support active transportation to school.  Students are encouraged to walk or cycle (in the spring) to and from school.  Beyond the health benefits of walking, this also reduces the traffic congestion around Glen O which is becoming a problem. 
As part of the program, students are asked to participate in a quick survey each week and the class with the most active commuters wins a golden shoe award for the week.  This was run in the fall and the students were very proud when their class won an award.  
We realize that walking the entire route is not practical for everyone and not possible for someone some parents.  However,  we are asking parents who do drive their children to consider dropping their children off approximately 5 mins walk from the school.  This allows them to participate and again reduces the congestion around the school.  
To assist parents, we have attached a map of three suggested drop off locations.   Please have a look and consider if this could work for you and your family.   We look forward to having more active commuters!
