Walk/Bike to School Month

During the month of May, Winona students are encouraged to walk or bike to school every Wednesday as part of National Walk/Bike to School Day.

Dates will include May 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th. The rain or shine event is a fun way to motivate kids to become more physically active. This effort is a coordinated partnership between Winona Area Public Schools, Live Well Winona, Parks & Recreation, and PartnerSHIP for a Healthy Winona County.

Students will be guided by volunteers to ensure safe arrival at school. Volunteers are needed to bike and walk with the kids. Please consider volunteering for one hour on one or more of these days. Bright colored or neon clothing is recommended.

Students are asked to arrive no later than 7:15 am and they will start their walk at 7:20 am. Meet at the following locations: Bluffview Montessori and Jefferson Elementary School - meet at John Nett Rec Center... Goodview Elementary School - meet at Goodview Fire Station... Madison Elementary School - meet at Bob Welch Aquatic Center...Rollingstone Elementary School - meet at Holy Trinity Church...WK Elementary School - meet at East Recreation Center Park and St. Stan's - meet at East Winona Fire Station.
