Pledge Drive Sandbox

79% of Students Participated in the 2015 Walk and Bike to School Week

Walk-and-Bike-to-School Week came to a close Friday, October 9. The week was enjoyed by all with with 79% of the students participating. That is almost 4 out of 5 students walking or biking to school! That's up 7% from last year. And last year was up 7% over 2013! Great job Silver Oak.

The week ended with a special visitor Friday morning welcoming the students and teachers alike. Zou Zou the Prancing Panda was out on the black top high-fiving kids, dancing, and having fun. And Friday afternoon, special guest and Vice Mayor, Rose Herrera came to Silver Oak to be part of the awards ceremony.

Principal Greenfield announced the final results at the end of the day Friday.

In third place, we had a tie at 92% participation

  • Ms. Ellenberger's 4th grade class

  • Ms. Weiler/Ms. Weber’s 2nd grade class.

In second place, with 95% participation

  • Mrs. Hogan’s 4th grade class. Super job. And Mrs. Hogan walked a lap each day! Way to lead!

And, in first place, with a whopping 99% participation level, and the winner of the Golden Shoe award and special snacks from the New Seasons Market — for the 2nd year in a row…

  • Mrs. Richard's 3rd grade class! Rose Herrera presented the grant that funded the security whistles. When Principal Greenfield and Rose Herrera awarded the Golden Shoe award the class was bursting with pride.

Thank you for walking and biking to school and making the week truly joyful.  And a special thanks to the more than 40 volunteers who offered their time to stamp hands each morning and distribute the colorful stickers each day. And an extra special thank you to Vice Mayor Rose Herrera, New Seasons Market, and Zou Zou the Prancing Panda.

 

Silver Oak, let's keep walking!
