Davisville’s first A.B.C. Day is met with great enthusiasm!

Davisville PS/MTSD held its first Anything But Car (ABC) Day today and the students responded with great enthusiasm.  Ninety percent of the school participated, with five classes having a remarkable 100% participation rate!  Most students (64%) walked, while 22% took a bus, and 5% rode their bike or scootered to school.

 

The kids all had a great time.  And parents enjoyed it too, commenting “…it was great to see the excitement in the children’s faces,” and “….it’s a great idea to teach children, who are our future!”

ABC events work to create safer routes for walking and bicycling, emphasize the importance of physical activity, increase concern for the environment, and help build connections between families, schools and the broader community.  For more information, please visit the Eco-Schools page.
