Bethel SRTS: Walking and Biking Encouragement in PE!
I am sticking with what I know–so I am using Physical Education Classes to talk to students about walking and biking to school! When my schedule allows, teachers are inviting me in to teach their PE classes. This gives me an opportunity to talk to the students in small groups about how they get to school and about changing habits! Each time I see a class I am able to talk a few minutes about Safe Routes to School and then teach PE. This allows me to reach more students and to hopefully give the teacher a break at the same time!
We are continuing to encourage students to try to use body power to get to school at least one day a week with Walk and Bike Wednesdays! Spring is coming, so start thinking about leaving the cars at home and walking or rolling to school!
