The sun is out, the mornings are light and Wednesday, April 6 is another Walk/Bike/Roll/Bus/Train/Carpool-to-School Day. If you drive, consider parking a few blocks from school and walking the rest of the way with your kids. Stop by the prize table on your way in—there will be free goodies!

This is a free event.  In fact I will give you something back.  I am not asking for your money, blood, sweat or tears, just a little extra effort to minimize the vehicle traffic to school.
