ABC/JSA – Wednesday March 21st

On March 21st Davisville will hold it’s monthly Anything But Car (ABC) Day from 8:25 – 8:40 a.m.! As you know, students are asked to arrive at school by any means…other then a car.  The class with the most number of participating students will receive the coveted Golden Shoe!  

Last month we had 87% of the school participating and 4 classes had 100% participation!  Let’s see if we can beat that number on Wednesday.

ABC events work to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion, concern for the environment and building connections between families, schools and the broader community.  As many of our families already walk, bus or bike to school we will be celebrating the choices we already make.  For others this is a great opportunity to think about alternative ways of travelling around our city.  (Even if that means just parking a few blocks away and walking the rest of way!)

Friendly reminder: Biking & scootering on school property is prohibited & any damage or theft of these items is not the responsibility of the school.
