PWTSC Supports Safe Routes to School program

PWTSC supported the Harvest Moon Family Fun & Fitness Festival at Jennie Dean Elementary. On Saturday, October 20, over 200 students and parents participated in a family fun and fitness event at Jennie Dean Elementary in Manassas. PWTSC applied for a Safe Routes to School mini-grant through VDOT which was approved. The funds were used to provide safety items such as reflectors and flashing LED lights, along with safety information on walking and biking to school. Information was provided to parents on local trails that can be used for biking and walking in Manassas and Prince William County. The festival included events such as; a bike/run/walk event, a bicycle rodeo, Yoga demonstration, Barbados Road Tennis demonstration, Manassas Dance Company demonstration, face painting, horse rides and hay rides. The event also focused on healthy eating habits.
