Children from Wrightwood Elementary get exercise and earn scholarship money by walking to school.

Wrightwood Elementary students form a ‘Walking School Bus’

WRIGHTWOOD, Calif.(VVNG.com)– A Walking School Bus is a group of children who walk to school together under the supervision of trained adult leaders. The program promotes good health, a cleaner environment, and reduced traffic around school.

At Wrightwood Elementary School, students participate in the Walking School Bus on most days and by the time they get to school they are alert and ready to learn because they have had their exercise. This is a great example of how children and adults can get physical activity into their daily routine.

This program is a great example of children and adults who have a Vision2BActive!
