Have 3 Minutes for More Happy, Healthy, Ready to Learn Kids in Northern Michigan?

Kids learning to move, and moving to learn is our goal.  And including physically activity as part of ordinary life – like going to school! – and inspiring their parents, teachers, principals, neighbors, community to do the same is, in our opinion, a powerful means to sustainable well-living and healthfulness. Norte administers Safe Routes To School programs across the region in order to keep more kids moving.

As part of that program, we administer the following survey once a year during November. Your participation means the world to us because it helps us bring resources to our community to create and promote Safe Routes To School. Your input also informs decision-makers when they are considering new infrastructure investments, design, and related policies.

If you have children at multiple schools, we would appreciate it if you could complete a survey for each school.  If you have children that attend the same school and travel to and from school similarly, one survey is fine.

Remember –Even if you drive to school every day, your input is needed and important. Also, walking or biking at least 10 minutes to your bus stop counts; so does driving, parking and then walking or biking the last 10 minutes to school from park & stroll locations.

Thank you for your support and continued participation. The survey will only take a few a minutes.

 


Norte Safe Routes to School programs can be found in schools in Traverse City, Northport, Elk Rapids, Kalkaska, and Suttons Bay. Our programs, projects, and events are dedicated to empowering students of all ages to be active for life. Email us with any questions  hello@elgruponorte.org
