Volunteers Needed for "Walking School Bus"

One week after spring break wraps up, the new "Walking School Bus" will launch at Holmes Elementary in northwest Spokane on April 20th. Adult volunteers are needed to join this active transportation program and walk with kids one mile to school rain or shine (appropriate weather gear provided).  

Commitment is one morning per week, but more is preferred, from 7:30-8:30 a.m.  The Walking School Bus continues until the last day of school on June 17th.  Seth Woodard Elementary's program will launch on May 11th and continue until June 12th.  

Please contact Annie Szotkowski, Walking School Bus Organizer for the Spokane Regional Health District (509) 324.1452 if you are interested in this volunteer opportunity.
