On Friday, December 9th the Walking School Bus program will be having a one-day winter walk.

No registration is necessary. Just show up by 7:25 a.m. at the Ashland Baptist Church parking lot. Supervision will be available beginning at 7 a.m.

The SoBoCo Walking School Bus program has been popular organized effort to provide Primary and Elementary students a group walk to school effort, providing a safe way for students to get exercise before school. Organizers and teachers have said students are more awake, ready to learn after they have a morning walk. A number of volunteer parents accompany the students.

Bundle up nice and warm and find your most festive hat and be ready to practice your Christmas carols on the way to school. For more information please contact Joan Seidel-Petralia at 573-657-4601. The group will walk unless the pedestrian trail is unsafe or too slick for walking.
