On Wednesday, October 7th, Sierra Vista Elementary School partnered with the Madera County Department of Public Health, the City of Madera Police Department, the Community Action Partnership of Madera County (CAPMC), and the City of Madera Parks & Community Services to celebrate National Walk to School Day. This event is celebrated across the country to promote walkable communities, environmental awareness through the reduction of automobile pollution, physical activity, and safe walking and bicycling behaviors. The UC CalFresh Nutrition Education Program participated in the event by providing a MyPlate educational booth paired with physical activity to support the national movement.

How did we warm up for the walk? With the cha cha slide of course!
