NEWPORT — Newport City Elementary School students have been walking to school the first Wednesday of every month.
This is the third year the school has participated in this national Safe Routes to School program.
Each time a student walks, a portion of walking the Long Trail is calculated.
This month they are celebrating Mrs. Scherer’s fifth-grade class because for the third month in a row they have had the most participants.
The Golden Boot will be showcased in the school lobby long after the class has graduated.
For anyone interested in joining the walk, contact Beth Barnes, North Country Hospital’s Community Outreach Specialist, at 334-3210, ext. 351, prior to Wednesday, February 1st.
