Grady Elementary PTA introduces

Walk to School Wednesday

Walk to school the first Wednesday of each month and win prizes for your class!

Here’s what you do:

  1. Walk (or bike! or scooter!) to school on the first Wednesday of the month, starting October 12th.

  2. Check in with volunteers by the corner of Grady and Morrison Ave. from 7:10 to 7:35 am. Pick up a sticker & an eraser on your way to your classroom.

The class with the most walkers each month wins goodies for recess!

The class with the most walkers all year wins the Grand Prize Trophy!

Why Walk to School?

  • It’s healthy for your body and mind to start the day with some outdoor exercise.

  • It’s fun! Enjoy some time getting to know your neighbors.

  • It’s safer walking in a group.

  • It helps our neighborhood ask for better sidewalks and crosswalks!

  • You can help your class win recess goodies for having the most walkers each month or the Grand Prize Trophy for having the most walkers all year! 

Remember, walking to school is good for your health, good for your brain, good for your body, good for your community, and good for your planet!

Grady Elementary’s new “Walk to School Wednesday” program is a Sidewalk Stompers partnership. Sidewalk Stompers is an award-winning effort to increase the number of children walking to school. To learn more about Sidewalk Stompers, visit or search for Sidewalk Stompers on Facebook.
