Walk to School Day Oct. 6

The Perham-Dent schools are participating in the International Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 6.

Join children and adults around the world to celebrate the benefits of walking.

All students will have the opportunity to participate in a school-wide four-block walk from the Pamida parking lot. Buses will drop the students off in the parking lot.

All parents are encouraged to drop their students at Pamida too. There will be separate drops for buses and cars.

Together, students will walk more than 300 miles.

Volunteers will walk students to school from Pamida. Extra help will also be available from the police department.

The walk will be celebrated with a fruit treat and sticker once students arrive back at the school.

Thank you to Perham Memorial Hospital and Home and Pamida for their generous support of this event.

International Walk to School Day is an initiative of the Statewide Health Improvement Program. For more information contact Trish McClellan at 218-849-5935 of
