Winter Walk Day a Success!

The School Travel Planning Committee would like to thank everyone that took part in Lakeview’s 1st Winter Walk Day held last week Tuesday! It was a beautiful morning to walk to school and students and parents were greeted with special treats – hot chocolate, stickers and bracelets, as well as Fire and Police personnel who were monitoring traffic and safety for our walkers. And, Phiz the Beaver, Ottawa Public Health’s mascot led students around the school yard in a parade! We hope everyone had fun and will try to continue to use more active transportation to get to/from school. To learn more about this initiative, visit the Safe Routes to School website.
