October 5, 2016 was International Walk to School Day. This was a global event involving citizens all over the world walking and bicycling to school on the same day. Over the last several years, the Washington County Health Department has graciously donated snacks and volunteers to help support our students on this day. This year, they also donated a bicycle, and the winner was Terry Barnes from Richard Kane Elementary. 

Presenting the bike to Terry were Gayla Curtis, Counselor at Kane Elementary, and Larry Bergner, Administrator of the Washington County Health Department, along with Kane Elementary Principal Shelly White and Dianne Martinez, the district's Executive Director of Elementary and Middle Schools.

We appreciate the Washington County Health Department for their continued support in partnering with the district to help keep our students safe and healthy. Appreciation is also extended to Renee Wantland, Administrative Programs Officer of the Washington County Health Department, and Kerry Ickleberry, the district's Safe & Healthy Schools Coordinator, for making this possible.
