On Wednesday, March 8, SHS participated in National Walk to School Day. Instead of walking to school, students and faculty walked at school. Students and faculty participated in this event by walking around the track for different class periods.

The goal of the event was “to get people to start walking more” shared sophomore Justin Attwood.

Music was played from speakers as students walked, talking in groups and pairs as they lapped the track.

“It encourages people to walk and be active” said teacher Chad Earwood.

All SHS teachers were encouraged to bring their classes to the track to enjoy fresh air and exercise if they were able to align the activity to state standards. The event provided what some saw as a much needed break of activity from sitting in classrooms all day.
“I bring out class periods if it fits their schedules” Earwood explained further.

With the decline in activity among teenagers, Walk to School Day motivates students to reverse this decline by getting out of the classroom and getting essential exercise.
