Still Elementary celebrated Walk to School Day with a Park & Walk site at Mountain View Church, which is approximately one mile from the school.  Safe Kids Cobb coordinated the event and had goodie bags with incentive items from the Georgia SRTS Resource Center, as well as neon green t-shirts for students provided by Safe Kids.  Upon arrival, students checked in with Safe Kids Coordinator Amanda Walpole and then walked as a group with parents to the school.  The route required walkers to cross the street at a four-way stop about half-way to the school, and an intern with Safe Kids was stationed there to ensure drivers stopped and were aware of the pedestrians.  Approximately 80 students participated on Georgia Walk to School Day and it was a great success!
