Whole School Walking Contest begins April 30

On Wednesday April 30th we will begin our 6 1/2 week long spring walking contest. There will be a kick-off WALK AT LUNCH EVENT(sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield) and all student participants will receive a pair of sunglasses.  You can collect your sunglasses from your teacher(s) at the cafeteria.

During the 6 1/2 week contest, any miles walked around school property will be counted. Mileage/laps will be tallied daily by key students or a teacher from your community on clipboards kept at the front lobby desk.  Mitch Craib and Mike Parker will transfer your community's data into a computer spreadsheet and plot the findings.  Results of the contest will be posted weekly in the lobby area and on daily announcements.  The community with the most miles will become the custodian of the golden shoe trophy.  In contrast, the community with the least miles will receive the battered shoe award.

Note: For those of you not associated with a specific community, there will be a group you can compete with.

The purpose of this contest is to get us all moving for the sake of health and fitness. Please join in during WIN times or whenever your class can take a break outdoors.  

Walk to School Day May 2nd

On Friday the 2nd we will hold our 4th "walk to school day" of 2014.  Please come out and join us in record numbers.  In April we had 202 student and adult participants.  Let's aim for 300 or 400 this May.  Teachers can join in by parking away from school and walking in.  There will be wristbands and pencils for those who participate.  Parents and adults can have a cup of coffee in the cafeteria after the walk and can be driven home if need be.  Since this is the Friday before Vermont Green Up day we will provide gloves and garbage bags for bus leaders so we can collect things we would rather not see on the ground.

National Bike to School Day May 7th 

On Wednesday May 7th City School will hold a bike to school event.  There will be two biking groups.  

1.  A 7:00am group will leave from Barlow Street Community Center, travel down Weldon and then up Elm street to City School.  

2.  Another group (7:30am) will leave the Senior Center down Messenger & Lincoln Streets to Bank Street and Taylor Park.  From there the group will go down Kingman Street to Federal St. to Aldis street to City School. 

Both groups will be led by a Police Cruise Car and at least two cycling adults.

Please join us if you can.
