Emerald Cove Walks Or Bikes To School

On Oct. 8, the Emerald Cove Middle School Mighty Pirates joined thousands of students across the nation to celebrate “International Walk or Bike to School Day” by walking, biking and skateboarding to school. First started in 2012 with the intention of teaching students how to safely travel to and from school, it is celebrated every October in hopes to spread the word about how walking or biking to school is fun, encourages healthier habits and is cleaner for the environment. Shown above is Kimberly Kovacs, organizer and art teacher, with students from art classes and Morning Mile Running Club members who volunteered to hand out goodies and promote the benefits of walking/biking.
