Friday, October 28th, Safe Routes Chagrin is hosting a "mini" Walk to School Day for the Intermediate School students (Morning Only). Students can walk from home or join the "meet and walk" location at the Town Parking Lot (on West Washington St. across from Village Hall - meet at 7:40 AM). Volunteers and crossing guards will walk the group to school. Parents are welcome to join the walk too! Walkers will be greeted at school with bagels, lemonade and raffle chances.
CFIS students will also have an assembly during the day with a skit on walking safety. The skit is a custom program produced by the Chagrin Valley Little Theater and performed by some of our own high school students! The show will touch on important safety reminders such as not texting and walking (or playing Pokemon Go), not cutting through the parking lots, and using crosswalks.
We are excited to add some extra fun to our annual assembly day since we had to cancel or big "walk to School - Walk to Town Day" twice this fall. We hope your student will enjoy the festivities!
