National Bike, Walk, and Roll

National Bike, Walk, and Roll to school day is May 4, 2022, and you can celebrate ANY DAY in May that works for your school and community. Register here! Walking, biking, and rolling to school help make communities safer and lower our environmental impact. They are also a great way to encourage children to be more active. AND, studies show that students who take an active route to school are more prepared to learn when they get to their desk.

You can also stay local and register and use this toolkit from the Oregon Safe Routes to School program.

Safe Routes to Schools

Portland Public Schools is applying for a grant through the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to hire a Safe Routes to School coordinator, which would help us create more options for students to get to school in an active, carbon-free way. Stay tuned for updates by signing up for the PPS Sustainability newsletter.

National Green Schools Alliance

Join the National Green Schools Alliance to STOP IDLING in front of schools once and for all. Idling is bad for the environment and bad for human health, especially young humans whose lungs are vulnerable to poor air quality. An idling vehicle emits 20 times more pollution than one traveling at 30 miles per hour. Idling not only pollutes the air, it wastes gas and money. Start a no idling campaign at your school today.
