New Safe Routes to School Initiative Gets Walking and Rolling!
Laurel Hill kicked off its new "Walk and Roll to School" initiative with its first "Walk and Roll Day" on Tuesday, November 24. Arrival and dismissal time included interactive sculpture building by children who walked or rolled by bike (or other non-motorized wheels) to school. Each one got to add a LEGO-type brick in the color of their choice to the big baseplate, and the sculpture grew with each student arriving for the day.This new initiative – designed to increase healthy activity and decrease Kiss & Ride congestion – is funded in part by a grant from the Virginia Department of Transportation's Safe Routes to Schools program. Watch for more "Walk and Roll" events coming soon!
