Camellia community celebrates International Walk to School Day

e-Connections Post

Safe Kids Greater Sacramento celebrated International Walk to School Day at Camellia Basic Elementary this morning.

Volunteers from Federal Express, Sacramento Police Department and the California Highway Patrol staffed tables at the two school entrances to give out prizes and cheer students on as they walked to school.

The school community then joined students and parents on the blacktop during “Walking Wednesdays” walking time, which was followed by a short parent meeting to explain the upcoming “Paving the Way for Safe Routes to School” grant.

Camellia Basic Elementary and Thomas Edison Language Institute are the two schools that we will be working with on this CA Kids Plates grant with WALKSacramento over the next two years.
