Moran Prairie Elementary School located will be joining schools from around the country to celebrate “Walk to School Day” this week, on October 6.

The event marks the 14th International Walk to School Day. Moran Prairie students and parents will join more than 5,000 schools across the country by walking to school on Wednesday, October 6th to promote a healthier lifestyle. The idea is to walk to school together with a purpose – to promote health, safety, physical activity and concern for the environment.

This year, the Moran Prairie schoolchildren will have access to a new pathway for a safer commute. The Spokane County Engineer’s office received grant funding to extend a 10-foot wide pedestrian/bike pathway from the Ben Burr Trail on the north side of 57th Ave. to a point directly across from Moran Prairie Elementary School. This completed a safe walking route for approximately 150 students that currently live in the Moran Prairie Elementary school area.
