Celebrate Massachusetts Walk and Bike to School Day Tomorrow!

MA Safe Routes to School and Schools all over the Commonwealth will participate in Massachusetts Walk to School Day on Wednesday, May 1st, when students will join together to walk and bicycle to school.

There are lots of ways to celebrate! It can be as easy as students walking/biking together with parents or friends to Zervas.

Why walk/bike?
– Walking, cycling, or using public transportation is important to help relieve congestion around the school for health and safety of all.
– Students who walk or bike to school have the added benefit of exercise which helps improve health outcomes and academic performance.
– Helps make the Newton and the Zervas community a more environmentally friendly place.
– If you must drive to school, consider carpooling and/or dropping your child off at a safe location near school instead of in the blue zone and then walk to school with them, or encourage your family to walk to school at least once or twice a week if they can.

Interested in working to help coordinate Walk to School Activities for Zervas next year? If so, please contact Joe Sypek at jpsypek1@verizon.net or 617-721-9058.
