On the morning of October 10th, around 100 students and parents participated in international Walk to School Day. Walk to School Day began in 1997 and is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries. Maplewood’s walk was organized by the parent-run Safe Routes to School team and led by the gym teacher, Ms. Lambdin-Abraham, with escort by Austin Police Department. Thanks to everyone who met us at Patterson Park or walked from other parts of the neighborhood!
