Approximately 95 Marion Elementary students participated in International Walk to School Day. This is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration.
