Did you know that studies have shown that as school children increase their physical fitness their test scores improve? Plus, school is more fun when you walk. We love walking to school and we walk to school as often as we can.

What a heartwarming and encouraging story! Such a refreshing change after the headlines of the previous weeks/months. "If you don't like the news, go out and make some of your own!" (Scoop Nisker) Thanks, Woodside Elementary and Millo Fenzi!

Any day can be walk/bike/carpool/bus to school day, as long as parents and kids agree.
