Rainbow Community School would like to invite our West Asheville neighbors to join us in celebrating Walk/Bike to School Day on Wednesday, Oct. 5.
Rainbow Community School boasts a strong core of students/teachers/families who regularly walk and bike to school. Both of our bike racks are packed on a daily basis!
Please stop by the Rainbow Community School office as you walk or bike on your way to your school to receive a set of sunglasses courtesy of Safe Routes to School on your morning or afternoon commute.
Research by Donnelly and Lambourne (2011) has shown that after 20 minutes of physical activity, students tested better in reading, spelling and math and were more likely to read above their grade level. So let’s get out there and move!
