Walking school bus program begins at Kansas school

March 31, 2009
Groups of students walk to school together to encourage fitness

From The Kansas City Star: Someone cut a ribbon, a stilt walker rallied the crowd and tiny feet powered up the first walking school bus in Kansas. The program at Pawnee Elementary School in Overland Park is part of a national effort to encourage exercise and curb obesity. Groups of students come together to walk to and from school each day escorted by adult volunteer “bus drivers.”
