Carver Walking Club Fridays Kicks Off Today

The Carver Walking Club will be back this year – and better than ever! Starting Today August 23rd, the membership of the Walking Club will convene every Friday for a Club walk to school. Yes, you read that correctly – there will once again be a Walking Club walk to school every Friday! You can also look forward to t-shirts, prizes and new Walking Club hole-punch membership cards. Look for your new membership card in your backpack next week before the first walk!

Members of the Carver Walking Club should take great pride in this school activity. Carver students have taken the notion of a Walk to School Day (which used to happen once a year) and turned it into a healthy, environmentally friendly and now WEEKLY fun event. Let’s top the club’s great turnout from last year! Don’t forget that coveted “Golden Shoe” Award. Who will be the first class to win it this year?…

Walk with your child or drop them at one of the four “Walking School Bus” starting points at 7:50 a.m. every school Friday. At 8:00 a.m., your child will walk to school with a group of students led by a parent volunteer, also known as a “Walking School Bus”.  Don’t forget to bring your Carver Walking Club Punch Card!

You can choose from one of four Walking School Bus routes:

Route 1: Meet at 7:50 AM at the location of The San Marino Toy & Book Shoppe, located at 2476 Huntington Drive. The Walking School Bus will then walk east on Huntington to Carver.

Route 2: Meet at 8:00 AM at the corner of E. Ravendale Road and Vista Street. The Walking School Bus will walk north on Vista and west on Huntington to Carver.

Route 3: Meet at 7:50 AM at the south-east corner of San Gabriel and Duarte Road by Howie’s Ranch Market. The Walking School Bus will walk north up San Gabriel to Carver.

Route 4: Meet at Wallingford and Palomar at 8:00 AM. The Walking School Bus will walk south on Palomar and then east on Huntington to Carver.

*Note: Your children can also join any Walking School bus along their route.
