• walk to school

    The Walk to School program is in its 13th year at OCE!  As part of our commitment to healthy choices, families walk to school on the first Wednesday of the month from October through June.  Please join one of the “Walking School Buses” listed below. When you arrive at OCE, we all celebrate with backpack tokens and a raffle. Walk to School t-shirts are available for $10. Mark your calendar with these dates!

    Information for all walkers: Please be at your stop 5 minutes before the scheduled leave time. All walking school buses leave promptly at the posted time. A neighborhood captain, who will be wearing a lime green safety vest, will be at the stop to lead the Walking School Bus. Parents must walk with their children or arrange for them to walk with another adult. All routes will arrive at school by 8:45. Anyone who does not live in the neighborhoods listed above may join the Walking School Bus departing from KidsTowne Park on Walking Wednesdays!

    If you are interested in volunteering as a Neighborhood Captain or have questions, please email Parent Coordinator Bridget Robertson bridgetjane23@yahoo.com.
