Keep the Momentum Going!!
With the exciting and successful International Walk+Bike to School day complete, continuing the momentum through the months leading to spring can be challenging. But it’s important to give students, their families and the community the opportunity to realize that roads are for moving people and the people may be using their feet, bike, scooter, car, bus or other modes of transportation. We all have to work together to ensure safe, efficient and fun arrival at our destination.
How about monthly, better yet, weekly organized walks and rides to keep the interest high? Check out our Encouragement Calendar used by some Beaverton schools for possible themes to promote your events. Please share your creative events for others to try!
Schools and communities have the best chance of success when they combine expertise, resources and program elements that consider the "5 E's of Safe Routes to School": Encouragement, Education, Enforcement, Engineering and Evaluation.
