Sidney Elementary has been hosting Walk Wheeling and Waste Free Wednesday each fall and spring to encourage students to walk, cycle or use any mode active transportation for all or part of their trip to school. Students are also encouraged to bring their lunches in re-usable containers.
When students arrive at school they throw an outdoor dance party – complete with music, sidewalk chalk and other activities. What a great start to the day, walking, biking and spending time with their friends! Celebrating the fun of active travel helps students feel excited about physical activity in the morning.
Students at Sidney Elementary were also able to learn more skills for their Walk Wheeling and Waste Free Wednesdays through the cycling skills course on May 10. The students were very eager just to be on their bikes - and they loved the obstacle course!
