CBES Students Walk to School with Carolina Beach Police Dept.

As a part of  “National Walk to School Day” and “Active Routes to School” a group of Carolina Beach Elementary School students along with local law enforcement met at the Carolina Beach Lake last Wednesday where they walked to school. Special thanks to Carolina Beach Police Department’s Chief Spivey, Sgt Harvey, Ofc Naughton, Cpl Henderson and New Hanover County Sheriffs Department’s Sgt Knox for encouraging our children to walk to school!
Active Routes to School Region 8 project works across 9 counties to make it easier for elementary and middle school students to safely walk and bike to school and be physically active at school. The project coordinators work with partners in their communities to increase: Awareness of the importance of Safe Routes to School. The number of programs that encourage walking and biking to or at school. The number of trainings on how to implement Safe Routes to School. The number of policies that support walking and biking to and at school—such as early arrival and departure for walkers and bikers. The number of safety features near schools such as sidewalks, cross walks and bike lanes. In addition to working directly with schools, the project coordinators work within communities to identify opportunities for shared use of facilities and Complete Streets to improve access to physical activity.
National Walk to School Day is observed annually on the first Wednesday in October. This is a day to get out and get some exercise while enjoying the weather.
