Walking School Bus

Today, it seems, riding to school in a motorized vehicle has become the norm. We propose that "normal" should be that students within walking distance of school actually walk to school.  The idea is simple. Children needing supervision as they go to school gather at a designated spot and at a specified time, walk to school as a group under the supervision of one or more adults.  Sign up below if you're interested in helping make this happen!
