The Burbank Traffic Management Office (TMO) and Cartoon Network partnered with the Burbank Unified School District to support the day’s activities, which are intended to encourage students to live more active, healthier lifestyles while reducing local traffic congestion and vehicle emissions in the community.

Sponsors provided t-shirts, wristbands, reflectors, and stickers bearing the Bike & Walk to School Day logo, and a raffle resulted in five lucky students winning bike helmets.

At Robert Louis Stevenson the PTA assisted with handing out shirts, bottled water, stickers, and even had tables setup where kids could write appreciation notes to teachers preparing for the end of year ‘Teacher Appreciation Day’.
