Dear Central Families,

We are excited to announce that we will be taking part in Winter Walk Day next Wednesday February 1!

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. 

Walk with your child to school next Wednesday to join in the celebration! 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.

Thank you, 
Central PS
