Are you interested in starting a Walking School Bus?

Do your kids go to Major General Griesbach School? Do you live near the cross street of Pegasus/Bonaventure? Do you want your kids to be more active and meet more kids on their block? If you answered yes to any of these, then a walking school bus may be for you!

Studies show that fewer children are walking and biking to school, and more children are at risk of becoming overweight. Creative solutions, such as the walking school bus, aim to change behaviors of both parents and children to help build a healthier, safer and more active community. A walking school bus is a group of children walking to and from school with one or more adults. It’s a great way to expand children’s social circles and give them more exercise and fresh air every day.

Here in Griesbach, we are lucky to have such beautiful, walkable area and we need to capitalize on this opportunity. Let’s teach our kids to be more mindful of nature and less reliant on cars.

If you’re interested in helping bring this grassroots initiative to fruition, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. The more people we have (adults and children) the more successful we can be!
