Polar Walk 2015 @ Moscow Middle School

We had alot happening at the Middle School for Polar Walk this year!

15 students volunteers helped Brooke with different things around the school to prepare for the event. Thank you to Lori Lawton and New Lawton, both science teachers for helping me arrange the student volunteers.


4 students used the iPads SR2S bought for MMS, to count the numbers of walkers, bikers, cars and bus traffic around the school from 8:30-8:10am (see numbers below) 281 students were counted (that’s 54% of the school!)IMG_5808

One student used the GoPro camera that SR2S bought the school last year to videotape students as they were interviewed about their walk to school. The footage will be spliced down to create a video that will be sent to a 7th grade class in Oslo, Norway (we hope to post the video here when it is completed).

Students who walked or biked put a “Polar Walk” sticker on a big poster that said “We Walked”
