Safe Routes to School Networking Opportunity in Northeast Seattle


Safe Routes to School Networking Opportunity in Northeast Seattle

Bryant Elementary School in Seattle’s Ravenna neighborhood has long been a champion in promoting biking and walking to school.  For the better part of a decade, they have been growing the practice of active commuting to school, now bringing dozens of bicyclists and many more walkers to campus every day. They’ve been so successful that they won the Golden Shoe Award in 2012 for making great increases the number of students biking and walking to school.

Now the parent organizers of this successful grassroots effort are reaching out to expand the energy, ideas, and excitement by sharing and networking with other schools.

Please join Bryant Elementary School parents for a night of networking around how to get more kids walking and biking to school!

When:  Thursday, April 12 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM 

Where: Bryant Elementary in NE Seattle   3311 NE 60th Street  / Seattle 98115The meeting will feature presentations from schools encouraging walking and biking in creative ways.

There will be plenty of time for Q&A, discussion, and general networking.  Information about mini grants from the Seattle Department of Transportation’s Safe Routes to School Program and Cascade Bicycle Club help you prepare for the upcoming Bike to School Month.  We will be on hand — ostensibly to share information about our resources available to schools including: tools and resources that have been effective at increasing walking statewide. Most importantly, we are looking forward to learning about the wonderful ideas generated by parent activists.

The event organizers hope their parent-sponsored meetup will lead to a stronger network of school programs throughout Seattle. 

Please RSVP if you plan to attend by emailing clint.loper@gmail.com.
