Harriet Bishop Elementary celebrates Walk and Bike to School Day

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) – The rain held off long enough for International walk and bike to school day this morning.

Students and their families brought awareness to pedestrian safety by taking a stroll to class.

It also reminds drivers to not be distracted, and to slow down in school zones.

Mayor Brede, players from the RCTC Football team, and Slider from the Rochester Honkers all came to show support.

Walking and biking to school means less traffic on the road, and getting students active prepares them for learning later in the day.

“Yeah, it’s good for them,” Said Jana Miller, whose children attend Harriet Bishop Elementary in Rochester. “It gets them out in the morning for some exercise and then it’s good in the afternoon to kind of wind them down and talk to them about their day.”

Students at Harriet Bishop Elementary circled the building multiple times to high five their superstar visitors.
