Perham-Dent Schools are participating in International Walk to School Day on Wednesday October 10th, 2017.
Join children around the world to celebrate the benefits of walking.
All Perham-Dent School District students will have the opportunity to participate in a school-wide 8-block walk to school on Wednesday, October 10th. Buses will drop students off on the corner of SW 7th St and Coney St (see map). All parents who drive their students to school are encouraged to drop their students at the same location.
This drop off location is one block south of the hospital. We’ll walk along the Wildflower Trail and meet up with the Cal Miller Bike Route.
Note: If you’d prefer that your students get dropped at school, have them stay on the bus and it will take your student to school.
Volunteers will walk students to school. Extra help from the Police and City will be available that morning while students collectively walk more than 800 miles!
All participants will receive an apple provided by Perham Health.
Walk will take place, rain or shine. Dress for the weather; if it’s raining; bring an umbrella.
International Walk to School Day is an initiative of the Perham-Dent School District with help from PartnerSHIP4Health. For more information, contact Jim Kennedy at 218-346-KIDS (5437) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
