Maples Elementary School

Walk/Bike to School Day- Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Tomorrow, Wednesday October 10, 2018 is Walk/Bike to school day.We are encouraging all Maples students to walk or bike to school. It is healthier, better for the environment, and fun!
Walking and bicycling to school enables children to incorporate the regular physical activity they need each day while also forming healthy habits that can last a lifetime. Regular physical activity helps children build strong bones, muscles and joints, and it decreases the risk of obesity. In contrast, insufficient physical activity can contribute to chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and stroke.
