Parents, Students Participate in International Walk to School Day
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
There were less cars on the road than usual around area schools Wednesday, because it was International Walk to School Day.
Parents at Faye Webb Elementary took part in the international day, walking with their children to school.
Educators said that, when parents walk their children to school, it promotes a healthier lifestyle and gives parents a chance to spend a little more quality time with their kids.
"It's always good to see your school and fellow parents promoting quality time with your kids, but also that healthy lifestyle aspect," parent Chris Skoglund said. "Just a chance to spend your time holding hands. It's just a great time."
"It's important to show your kids support and show them that it's good to exercise," parent Jessica Flores said.
The event was organized by Faye Webb Elementary's parent teachers association.
