Walk and Roll to School with Mayor & Friends

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Special to The Advocate


Mayor Gary Christenson, City Council President Steve Winslow, Ward 5 Councillor Ari Tayor and Ward 8 School Committee Member Sharyn Rose-Zeiberg joined the Linden Community to participate in the Winter Walk and Roll to School as part of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation Safe Routes to School Program this week. Students, teachers and families met at Hawkridge Delta Park on Beach Street or Steve’s Corner Store on Salem Street in an effort to raise awareness of getting to school safely. The program works to increase safe walking and biking among elementary, middle and high school students by using a collaborative, community-focused approach. School leaders encouraged students to wear bright colors in the evening or early morning, to cross at crosswalks, to be aware of surroundings and to always look both ways before crossing.

An added bonus was that the students assisted the Mayor in picking up trash along the route!
