Tue, Oct 18th is Walk To School Day!

International Walk to School Day will be held on Tuesday Oct 18th. Walk to School is a terrific Wildwood tradition promoting physical activity, pedestrian safety and concern for the environment. As in years past, we hope to have 100 or more students and parents walking to Wildwood accompanied by UMass athletes and, for the first time this year, real live scientists.
