On October 5, 2011 Prescott Elementary School hosted the City of Portland's International Walk + Bike to School Day celebration, though 80 schools throughout the City participated in the International event. This years International Walk + Bike Day marked 7 years of Safe Routes to School programming in Portland. Today, over 40% of the trips to Portland elementary schools are made on foot or on bike. A significant improvement over seven years ago and much better than the national average of 12%.

A special thanks to Principal Michael Lopes & Superintendent Karen Gray for hosting us. And an extra special thanks to the kids of Prescott who walked and biked.
