Sept. 27, 2012 - PRLog -- WABAN, MASS., SEPTEMBER 27 --In honor of International Walk to School Day the Zervas and Angier Elementary Schools are planning a special event for Friday, October 5th with a rain date for Friday, October 12th.  Both schools are walking to Lincoln Park, which is about the half way mark between Zervas and Angier to promote walking and living a healthy lifestyle.

Inspired by an idea, Alderman John Rice and Safe School Representatives Theresa Fitzpatrick and Joe Sypek worked with Zervas’ Principal Diana Beck and Angier’s Principal Loreta Lamberti to prepare for the event.  

The plan is to leave both schools by 9:00 a.m. walk along Beacon Street and meet at Lincoln Park.  There will be music by “Funtastic Friday’s” D-Jay Mike Pride, healthy snacks by Whole Foods Market and dignitaries, State Representative Kay Khan and Superintendent David Fleishman will speak.

There will be designated areas for grade levels to gather: listen to music, enjoy a healthy snack and take in the beautiful day.

Safety is our number one priority and in order to ensure a safe walk, the Newton Police will help us by patrolling Beacon Street.  Traffic Officer Divine and Safety Officer Gourdeau will assist with the walk.  Children will walk on the sidewalks and cross streets with adult supervision.  Our school nurses will also be attending and bringing all necessary safety items.

Imagine 735 elementary school children walking along Beacon Street and coming together at Lincoln Park to celebrate International Walk To School Day!  Our goal is for children to recognize that they can make a difference in their own lives by making healthy choices and by making small changes like walking.
