Recently, an Anaheim elementary school created a video about A Walking School Bus that will inspire other schools to use this creative concept to encourage more students to walk to school safely.
A Walking School Bus is an organized group of students that walks to school together with adult supervision. Similar to a carpool, the adult “bus driver” either meets the students at a designated meeting spot or picks them up along the walking route to school. Walking to school is one of the easiest ways to get daily physical activity. Participants enjoy walking with their friends and the school enjoys less traffic and congestion.
This video created by Anaheim Elementary School District depicts a Walking School Bus project in action at the Olive Elementary School.
