Forest Goes Forest Green For Walk To School Day


Share post:

Students, faculty, parents, and officials gathered in the Forest Avenue section to walk to school on Wednesday morning, October 10, to celebrate International Walk to School Day. Walk to School Day is a global event that encourages healthy lifestyles and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Dressed in “forest green,” the Forest Ave. community gathered at two intersections before walking to school together as friends.

Walk to School Day has been celebrated in Verona for 10 years. The Verona Environmental Commission also sponsors this event for Verona students with a poster contest that challenges students to think about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and making changes that benefit the environment. “The Forest Walk to School Day was well attended. Students, parents and school staff walked from two locations to the school and assembled on the front lawn for a group picture. The level of participation demonstrates the commitment of our families for having students walk to school.” said Forest Avenue Principal Jeffrey Monacelli.

Forest Avenue School has consistently celebrated Walk to School Day with a large turnout from the community and support from the Forest Ave. SCA. “This is a great event that the kids look forward to celebrating every year,” said Cynthia Holland, Forest Ave parent. Walk to School day will be celebrated next year on October 2, 2019.
