WHY SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL AT PONDEROSA?

 

The Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs promote walking and bicycling to school in a safe and healthy environment. Here are the top 5 reasons to support a Safe Routes to School Program in our school:

 

  1. Eases traffic congestion near schools, making schools safer
  2. Improves air quality near schools
  3. Physically active children perform better in school
  4. Physical activity like walking and bicycling, along with better food choices, fight the growing obesity epidemic among U.S. children, and improves overall health
  5. Builds a strong sense of neighborhood and community
