Washington County Department of Health and Human Services is honoring Sexton Mountain Elementary’s Walking School Bus at their 15th Annual Public Health Awards.

They won the Public Health Ambassador Award for their Walking School Bus program that has been running every Thursday for the past 7 years.

Every Thursday each participating student (sometimes over 350) walk an extra mile where they practice safe pedestrian skills, gain confidence and arrive to school on time and ready to learn. Beaverton School District produced this how-to flyer for other schools to use to create their own Walking School Bus or Park and Stride program.
