Waynesboro Public Schools will be celebrating Walk to School Week Sept. 30-Oct. 4 as students, parents, teachers and community volunteers walk to school to emphasize the importance of creating safe routes to school, increasing physical activity among children, concern for the environment and building connections between families, schools and their community.

Participating will be students from Berkeley Glenn Elementary School, Wenonah Elementary School, Westwood Hills Elementary School, William Perry Elementary School and Kate Collins Middle School.

The event has been organized by a broad partnership that includes Waynesboro Public Schools, Augusta Health, the Office on Youth, the Waynesboro YMCA, and the City of Waynesboro and its Planning Department, Police Department, Fire Department, Parks and Recreation Department School Board and City Council.

Each day of the week, students from a specific school will be dropped at specific sites by their buses, then continue the journey to school, walking as a group.
