Walktober wraps up

Beautiful fall weather graced our Walktober events to celebrate Bryant walkers this year! Each Friday morning over 100 Bryant students visited one of our four walking stations, had a treat, visited with friends and neighbors, and headed to school together. We thank everyone who helped with the stations, as well as those who stopped by a station.

It is great to see a large contingent of Bryant walking to school – not only does it help cut down on car traffic during drop off, it’s also a fun to start the day with fresh air and friends. As the coming months grow darker and wetter, stay warm and happy — keep on walking to school!

October is WALKtober

October is Walk to School Month, and we will be celebrating our many Bryant students who make their way to school on foot! Each Friday in October (Oct 6, 20, and 27) we will be hosting “walking bus stops” surrounding Bryant from 7:30-7:40 to gather with friends, have a treat, and walk to school together.

Meeting points:

  • West Station 30th Ave. NE/NE 60th St.
  • South Station 33rd Ave. NE/NE 55th St.
  • North Station 32nd Ave. NE/NE 65th St.
  • East Station 36th Ave. NE/NE 60th St.

Live NW of Bryant? A walking school bus will run through the neighborhood, beginning west of Third Place Books, and make scheduled stops on the way to school. Contact Michele Solis for more details.
