healthy living walk 2018Healthy Living Walk Letter 2018

Every year millions of children, teachers, and community leaders around the world
celebrate International Walking and Bicycling to School Day. The program aims to educate
and empower our students to live healthy lives by increasing opportunities for daily
physical activity. The location of our school makes it difficult to allow every child in the
Gray’s Creek district to participate in these activities for safety reasons. As a
replacement for these activities Gray’s Creek Middle School is holding a healthy living
walk.

Thursday, March 29, 2018 is going to be Gray’s Creek Middle Schools “Healthy Living
Walk” event. We would like our students from all grades to join our administration and
faculty for a two-mile walk through the housing community across from the school. We
would like our family and other community members to join us for the walk. The walk will
begin at 8:45 AM.
