Pasadena, CA - McKinley School, Norma Coombs Elementary 
School and Polytechnic School in Pasadena will join schools from 
around the world to celebrate International Walk to School Day 
on Wednesday, October 5, 2016.

 Approximately 100 students from McKinley School, Norma 
Coombs Elementary School and Polytechnic School will be 
walking to school Wednesday along with parents, teachers and 
community leaders. 

 For McKinley School, the event will begin at 7:45 am with 
kids, parents and community leaders walking from the Shoppers 
Lane Parking lot, north of San Pasqual Street. Walkers will arrive 
at the school at approximately 8:05am. At the school, students 
will arrive at a resource fair and assembly that includes Zumba, 
cheerleaders and other activities.

 Polytechnic School is encouraging students and adults in all 
grade levels to walk to school that day, either from home or from 
the Shoppers Lane parking lot. Plans include walking buses, 
crosswalk safety monitors, and prizes. Poly sees this day as an 
opportunity for its community to support the environment and 
heart-friendly commuting and to energize interest in changing 
routine habits. Poly will extend this invitation to celebrate Walk 
To School Day to include bikers and other alternate commuters.

 Walk to School Day events raise awareness of the need to 
create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the 
importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among 
children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and concern for the 
environment. The events build connections between families, 
schools and the broader community.

 The event at McKinley School is being organized by the 
Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) with assistance from 
the Pasadena Department of Transportation. This event is a 
component of the City’s Suggested Routes to School Program, 
which includes classroom education to students through the 
Pasadena Safe School Zones program, the development of 
Suggested Routes to School Maps, and other engineering and 
enforcement activities to enhance pedestrian safety for school 
aged children. 

 The Pasadena Transportation Department urges motorists to 
drive safely and always be aware of pedestrian traffic in school

 About International Walk to School Day

 Walk to School Day was established in the United States in 
1997 by the Partnership for a Walkable America. Canada and 
Great Britain already had walk to school programs in place. In 
2000, these three countries joined together to create International 
Walk to School Day.

In May 2006, the National Center for Safe Routes to School was 
established to assist communities in enabling and encouraging 
children to safely walk and bike to school.

 The National Center for Safe Routes to School serves as the 
national coordinating agency for Walk to School and Bike to 
School activities in the United States.

 Walk to School Day began as a simple idea – children and 
parents, school and local officials walking to school together on a 
designated day. It is an energizing event, reminding everyone of 
the simple joy of walking to school, the health benefits of regular 
daily activity, and the need for safe places to walk and bike. 
Schools focus on health, safety, physical activity and concern for 
the environment.

 Organizations supporting International Walk to School Day in 
the United States include America Walks, the Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention, the U.S. Environmental Protection 
Agency, the Federal Highway Administration, the Institute of 
Transportation Engineers, the National Center for Safe Routes 
to School, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 
Safe Kids Worldwide, and the Safe Routes to School National

(StatePoint) Running a household can be stressful, so finding a 
way to streamline your routine is a must. While you may have 
short-cuts and tricks already in place, stocking your home with 
the best supplies and most innovative products will help to make 
each day even easier.

How can you find the best products for your family? “Product of 
the Year,” the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product 
innovation backed by the votes of 40,000 consumers, is a great 
source for learning about great products introduced each year. The 
list of winners can serve as a helpful guide when navigating store 
aisles, and here are some of this year’s highlights:

• Keep your car looking great for the daily commute with a 
multitasking cleaner. The Turtle Wax Dash & Glass, the Car 
Care category winner, uses a proprietary formula for streak-free 
cleaning of both dashboards and windows.

• Don’t cover laundry odors, neutralize and prevent them. The 
new Downy Fresh Protect helps you get more out of each load by 
infusing fabrics with motion-activated technology to keep clothes 
smelling fresh no matter how active you and your family are each 

• With the right tools, you can skip the prices and the lines of the 
salon. Buff away thick and stubborn skin, extending the life of 
pedicures with the Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic 
Foot File with Diamond Crystals, which exfoliates to reveal 
beautiful feet.

• Pack a protein punch on the fly with a healthy grab-and-go 
snack. The Gold Emblem Abound Unsalted Pistachio & Almond 
Blend meets the American Heart Association’s criteria for heart-
healthy food and tastes delicious.

• Simplify family dinners on busy days with easy side dishes like 
Ore-Ida Bold & Crispy Fries. They are easy to prep and add great 
flavor to any meal.

• Pack an extra dose of nutrition into your dog’s daily diet. The new 
Purina Beyond Purées are easy to serve with your dog’s everyday 
food. Different varieties target a healthy immune system, digestive 
system or skin and coat.

• Maintain an active lifestyle each day. 
The Playtex Sport Collection, winner 
of the Feminine Care category, is 
designed to move with the body so 
women feel confident and protected 
while exercising and on-the-go.

• Want to indulge without the guilt? 
The Skinny Cow Dipped Ice Cream 
Bars fulfill ice cream cravings for only 
190 calories each.

• Satisfy your family’s sweet tooth 
with a new twist on a classic. The 
SweeTARTS Soft and Chewy Ropes 
are bendable and chewy with a fruit-
punch filling, combining sweet and 
tart flavors.

an innovative dietary supplement that 
includes melatonin, vitamin C and key
