A warm and sunshine-filled afternoon welcomed parents and students on our Martin Luther King, Jr. School walk. With school dismissed students were eager to get the walk started and help lead us on our route. Students and parents pointed out some concern areas along with some creative solutions, such as repairing the flashing beacon, on NE Alberta St, warning drivers of the 20 mph school zone speed limit.


A bright and sunny morning welcomed the Whitman walkers as we made our way from a nearby parking area to the school. Since many families drop students off, we held our first “Park and Walk,” to be as open as possible to the various ways people get to school. We had people arrive at the parking lot by foot, car, cargo bike, and even scooter!


 

Sunny weather and flowers set the tone as we held our walk following the school spring plant sale and students picked flowers along the walk route. Even with the sunshine there were many puddles along our route causing us to serpentine our way through the neighborhood.
