May is Get Outside Month and next week is Bike to School Week.

Dear Parents and Caregivers,
We wanted to let you know that May is “Get Outside Month,” and next week is “Bike to School Week.”
The goal of these initiatives is to educate children about the merits of walking and biking to school instead of driving (or, for those that don’t have the option, car-pooling).
The children will be learning about their eco-footprints and the merits of eco-friendly choices around transit to and from school.
We look forward to everyone taking advantage of the warm (albeit rainy) weather, making eco-friendly choices and being active.
– The Eco-Committee of Hawthorne/ Essex Schools
