Murch Elementary is one of 20 District schools that have signed up to participate in Walk to School Day 2013. Watch for the Murch kids in blue and gold, and please drive/bike safely!
From Manolis Priniotakis, ANC 3F05 commissioner and Murch HSA Safe Routes to School chair: On Wednesday, October 9, Murch will again celebrate National Walk to School Day with a number of activities geared toward raising student awareness about safe and healthy ways to get to school. Part of the Safe Routes to School program, the day received a kick-off on September 20, when the students heard about safe pedestrian practices from members of the Murch Safety Patrol during the first all-school assembly of the year.
If you are out and about during the morning on Wednesday, please keep an eye out for students wearing their blue-and-gold colors aboard “walking buses” headed to Murch! Metro police from the 2nd District and Fire/EMS officers from Engine 31 will be on hand to greet them as they arrive at Murch.
