Walk and Bike to School Day - October 2nd

Countryside is once again participating in the National Walk and Bike to School Day event on October 2nd. Students are encouraged to walk or bike to school with their parents, siblings, neighbors and friends. Edina Police Department, along with Countryside's Patrol Program and parent volunteers, will be on hand to safely escort walkers and bikers across the marked crosswalks located around Countryside. 

If you ride the bus, don't worry! You will be dropped off near the school so you can walk in, too.

Everyone will get apple slices and water and the grade with the highest participation level will win an extra recess!
