Reader asks did administrators and teachers “walk to school” for the month of October ?
Ridgewood NJ, Since October was named “Walk to school month” many readers have inquired if teachers and administrators have practiced what they preached ?
Did Superintendent Dan Fishbien or members of the BOE walk to the Ed Center ? Did they join the Ridgewood School community in celebrating Walk-tober Fest! Taking some time this month to promote health, safety and the environment by walking to school – or just simply taking a walk. Keeping motorists away from school campuses will create a safer environment for students who choose to walk or ride their bikes to school.
Did they foloow there own advice as advertised that “walking to school promotes safety, health, concern for the environment and physical activity.”
Few people know how to take a walk. The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes,old shoes, an eye for nature, good humor, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence and nothing too much.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
