Nevada Moves

Safe Routes is reaching out to you in order to find volunteers and organizers for local elementary schools participating in Nevada Moves Day on March 19th. If your elementary school has an athletic event in March you may be rewarded for your efforts with incentives from Safe Routes to School, like water bottles, bracelets and pencils.
This annual event is focused on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.  Safe Routes To School encourages physical activity and awareness of how easy it is for students to engage in exercise throughout the day.
Visit the Safe Routes Website to watch children’s creative activities from the past; last year 24 schools participated.
School Police Officer MJ Cloud will work with you, a staff member, or a parent to make this fun filled day a success. Contact MJ Cloud to get plans started.
