The journey outside is a safe and healthy choice for students and parents. Join the walk this February 1 and provide your kids with the jumpstart they need to perform better in the classroom! Let’s encourage, educate, and learn together!
All students can participate in Winter Walk Day! Bussed students walk to their bus stop. Remote learners can walk from home. Families who need to drive can park five minutes away and walk the rest of the way (find your Drive to 5 Maps here: https://www.stswr.ca/walkzone/maps/).
Walking outside in cold air can reduce stress, increase serotonin (the happiness hormone), and even though the action may be slower, walking in snow leads to greater heart conditioning and increased endurance over time.
