CAM­BRIDGE — On Thurs­day, Oct. 6, Chop­tank Ele­men­tary School had about 50 stu­dents, staff and par­ents par­tic­i­pate in Na­tional Walk to School Day.

This event pro­motes phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, pedes­trian safety, and an aware­ness of the “walk­a­bil­ity” of our com­mu­nity.

Phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion teacher Holly Ed­wards met a group of stu­dents at Green­wood Av­enue and picked up stu­dents along the way to Mace’s Lane.

An­other group of stu­dents was met at Cam­bridge Com­mons by Prin­ci­pal Emma Pin­kett, As­sis­tant Prin­ci­pal Jamie Bouchelle, sec­ond­grade teach­ers Emma Brant and Alleen Mes­sick, first­grade teacher Lau­ren How­ell, and ESOL teacher John Kahl.

Par­ents joined with their stu­dents mak­ing this event a fun fam­ily ac­tiv­ity as well. Ev­ery stu­dent who par­tic­i­pated in the Walk will re­ceive a par­tic­i­pa­tion cer­tifi­cate.
