Winslow Elementary Receives National Center for Safe Routes Mini-grant!
Congratulations to Winslow Elementary School and School Health Coordinator, Claire Heffernan, on receiving a National Center for Safe Routes to School $1,000 mini-grant for a project designed to encourage safe walking and bicycling to school. The project “will develop a peer walking program, led by its Junior High Fitness Committee and the fifth grade students. Students will use walkability and bikeability checklists to measure walking and bicycling safety around the school. They will also lead the development of a walking school bus and plant vegetation along the connector trail between the junior high and elementary school. The school will integrate walking and bicycling to school into the health and physical education curriculum, and the Bicycle Coalition of Maine will provide bicycle and pedestrian safety education.” For more information visit the National Center for Safe Routes Mini-grants information page.
