Westlake Charter

Students who walk or bike to school are more alert in class and able to concentrate better.

About Walking Wednesdays & Fridays

Walking and biking to school reduces traffic, promotes learning and good health, and helps the environment. Join the movement and walk, bike, or skate to school every Wednesday and Friday.

Students in grades K-2 should stop by our table on campus to get their Walking Wednesdays & Fridays card punched. They will also earn and accumulate an assortment of different colored charms throughout the year to display their love for walking/biking to school.

Students in grades 3-4 have the opportunity to earn Boot Bucks in the Trip Scanner program. Be sure to get your Trip Scanner tag scanned in each Wednesday and Friday that you walk, bike, or skate to school.

Do you live too far away from school to walk from home? Park at least 3 blocks away from school and walk the rest of the way in. Walking at least 3 blocks from school is counted as a walking day for the Walking Wednesdays & Fridays program.

Walking School Bus 

Can’t walk your child to school? Meet up with the walking school bus at 7:50 am in front of the AIM Mail Center at El Centro and Del Paso Rd, where students will walk together as a group to school; adult volunteers will be present.

Get Involved

Volunteers are needed at the crosswalks near the school and on campus on Walking Wednesdays & Fridays to help cross students safely, punch cards and distribute charms from 8 - 8:30 am. 

Or, if you would rather combine your morning workout with your volunteerism, you can chaperone the walking school bus - meet at the AIM Mail Center at El Centro and Del Paso Rd between 7:50 and 8:00 am.

Stop by the Walking Wednesdays & Fridays table or email Elena for more information and to get started!
