The Lake Anne PTA sponsored a rally for Walk to School Day, last Wednesday, Oct. 9, at a local park before school. The international day dedicated to walking to school inspired the PTA to host a walk to school the first Friday of every month.
Students received charms with a chain to put on their backpacks to commemorate the initiative. Parents, staff and students crossed streets with the help of guards and even Assistant Principal Melissa Goddin, to get everyone safely to school.
