A few dozen students and parents walked to school Monday morning to kick off an effort to get more healthy.
Called the Walking School Bus, students and parents as well as school officials, along with an accompanying school bus cut-out, walked from 35th Street and Agnes Road to American Martyrs and Grand View schools.
A Walking School Bus is considered to be a group of children walking to school with two or more parents.
The Walking School Bus effort is part of the Vitality City Initiative, and its aim is to get kids more healthy and connected to their neighborhood. Officials hope all schools will launch Walking School Buses by January, and parents can learn more about volunteering here.
