For Safer Streets, Healthier Bodies, And A Greener Planet

On Tuesday, October 7th Nixon Elementary School will join millions of students around the world who are choosing to walk, bike, ride the bus, and carpool instead of solo driving to school to observe International Walk to School Day. Families are encouraged to have a family conversation about how to share the road legally and safely.

Look for our banners, keep an ear tuned to morning announcements, join in the cheers of our volunteers and proudly don your stickers in celebration of this special and important event. Find more information about Palo Alto PTA Safe Routes to School programs at
