Wilshire Winter Walk Day February 7th!

WWD2018-General-Poster-EN

We are excited to announce that Wilshire Elementary School will be taking part in Winter Walk Day on Wednesday, February 7!

Walking to school in winter has many potential benefits, including benefits for your child’s health and well-being (like opportunities to learn and socialize on the way to school, and arriving to school alert and ready to learn), our community (reduced traffic congestion around the school) and the environment, too.

Next Wednesday, classes will take turns walking outside around our school yard to celebrate Winter Walk Day!  Upon finishing their class walk, each class will warm up with delicious dairy-free hot chocolate in the school.  Please ensure that your child comes prepared to participate in Winter Walk Day by dressing for the weather (warm jacket, snow pants, gloves, hat, scarf, boots).

Walk with your child to school this Wednesday to be part of the fun. If you’re on your way somewhere else and plan on driving to your next destination, consider walking and taking transit (see Google maps for available transit routes to/from your destination: https://www.google.ca/maps), or park/drop your child off a block or two away from the school to walk the rest of the way in. If you’re not able to join, encourage your child to walk with a friend.
