Walk, Roll, Carpool, or Bus to Nixon on Wednesday, April 24, in honor of Earth Week!

Please join the Nixon community in celebrating Earth Week by walking, rolling, carpooling, or busing to school on Wednesday, April 24. Use this opportunity to kick start a new routine that includes healthy commuting alternatives like walking, bicycling, riding the bus, or carpooling. Share your walk or ride to school with a neighbor or carpool if you live too far away. Riding the bus is a green way to get to school too! For information on safe routes to school and road safety tips, please go to: www.cityofpaloalto.org/saferoutes. If you need to drive, please don’t idle – turn off your engine at school.
