Over 200 Warder Elementary School students in Arvada braved the cold and rain Oct. 10 to participate in the annual Walk to School Day.
“It's so exciting to see people come together with the common goal of starting children on the right foot so they can thrive for years to come,” said Nancy PullenSeufert, director of the National Center for Safe Routes to School, the coordinating agency for Walk to School Day.
Nationwide hundreds of thousands of students, parents, school officials and local leaders celebrated the 22nd annual National Walk to School Day, which aims to inspire neighborhoods to celebrate safety, health and a sense of community.
“Warder is really about building community,” said Principal Matthew Hilbert, adding that several families started to walk together as a result of past Walk to School Day.
This year, the Warder Dads Society, helped organize the event.
“Safety is a priority,” said Warner Hettick, a member of the group. “It's something that dads are inherently there to support. We're about being positive influences in school, supportive and available.”
