SRS joined schools across the country to celebrate National Bike to School Day on May 10th. Students and parents enjoyed warm weather and sunshine as they rode to school together. Everyone gathered at the Borough Hall parking lot to take a few pictures with Dr. Tuck and officers from the Swarthmore Police Department. It was a great trip to school on a beautiful spring day! This was a wonderful opportunity for our students and to help our environment.
SRS participated in the National Walk-to-School Day held on Wednesday, October 5th. Mr. Bill Kane, Dr. Tuck and a group of parents accompanied a number of excited students to SRS for the annual walk-to-school event. Everyone enjoyed the crisp autumn air during our brisk walk to school. Advantages of being able to walk to school: It’s Fun! Walking and bicycling bring a sense of joy and independence. Healthier Habits The trip to school is a chance for children (and adults!) to get the physical activity they need. Cleaner Environment Replacing car trips to school with walking or bicycling can reduce congestion and air-polluting emissions. Promoting Safety Building sidewalks, providing education programs and adding traffic- calming measures are some of the ways to improve safety. Encouraging walking and bicycling to school can help build support for infrastructure improvements in the broader community. Community Benefits Reducing traffic congestion, boosting a sense of community, and improving neighborhood connections benefit the community.
SRS second grade student, Kathryn Barrett, visited with Dr. Lisa Palmer to welcome her back to the school year as our new Superintendent. Dr. Palmer shared with Kathryn how excited she was for the upcoming year and that she was confident 2016-17 is going to be a fantastic year for all! She is looking forward to welcoming all the students back!
