National Walk to School Day Celebrated Locally

WALLKILL – More than 200 Ostrander Elementary School students recently started off their school day on foot—skipping their usual bus or car rides. Instead, after a light breakfast in Popp Memorial Park the morning of October 2, they marched together to their school, happily participating in National Walk to School Day.

The nationwide event, sponsored by the Partnership for a Walkable America, was organized locally by Wallkill Elementary School Physical Education teacher Tom Palazzo.
