Middle School Students
Get some exercise, enjoy the weather and reduce your carbon “footprint” by walking or biking to and from school and at recess on Wednesdays!
Wednesdays from April 10th to May 29th
Who Can Participate:
Everyone! Students can meet at a team-mate’s house and walk/bike together, or if no one lives within walking distance, then you can be dropped off at a convenient location (like the post office) and walk from there. To get credit, you should walk or bike at least a 1⁄4 mile (10 minutes). After school, you can walk or bike to town, to the library, or to a friend’s house to earn more points. Remember, everyone can walk at recess!
How it Works:
You will form teams of up to 6 people. On Wednesdays, Team members earn a Trip Point for each time they walk or bike To/From school and when they walk the track at recess.
To track your trips to and from school, you must sign in at the Washington St. side of 1) the Rec sidewalk or 2) bike path between the ball fields. You will also sign in at the track at Recess. Your Team will get weekly summaries that you will enter into the contest website.
