October is “National Walk, Bike & Roll to School Month” and next Wednesday, October 10th is “National Walk, Bike & Roll to School Day.” On that day, Molalla River Middle School is asking parents and students to join us for this event, as we’ve identified 3 different meeting locations away from the school for families and/or students to gather at 7:00 AM and walk or bike to MRMS together. Each of the Walking School Busses will have 2 middle school adult staff leading the group, so if parents are not able to walk with their children, they can drop their student off at one of the designated locations. Our school goal is to decrease traffic and pollution in our community by reducing car trips, while at the same time promoting health and productive habits amongst our students.

Walking and biking to school is energizing and really fun once your child gets into the habit. Fresh air in the morning wakes up your child’s brain and makes them more engaged and alert for school. Teaching your child to use their feet to get places builds confidence and helps to keep them physically fit.

At each location refreshments will be provided for those who participate.  We will meet at 7:00 am at the following locations:                                                                                                                                                                                                               

Hi-School Pharmacy - 103 Robbins Street  (bike riding location)

Molalla Elementary School - 910 Toliver Road  

Stone Place Apartments - 872 West Main
