“This is the first year Miller Elementary participated in Bike and Walk to School Day and it was a huge success,” commented Tagmazyan. “Parents, grandparents and caretakers walked to school with students.”

“Students were greeted by our principal Judy Hession and were super excited when I started to hand out  the wristbands and the bike lights,” she added. “This event encouraged kids to walk more in order to stay healthy.”
