Gaston Walking School Bus - A Huge Success

Gaston Elementary School received a mini-grant for a walking school bus program from the Rock County Health Department. This program is designed to get kids active and support their school attendance.
Since the program began, the average number of students using the Walking Bus each day is 19. We thank Mrs. Handrich for being the main "driver" along with her service dog in training, Nigel. Principal Lewis and other staff are also “driving” the bus! With such success, Gaston is looking to expand the program even more!
Check out the video announcement from earlier this year to learn more about this program.
