Burke Town School "Walk for Lunch" Day


WALKING FOR LUNCH DAY AT BURKE TOWN SCHOOL -- April 30 was National Walk at Lunch Day across the country. The staff and students at Burke Town School chose to walk on April 29 to take advantage of the great weather. Instead of walking at lunch everyone walked during their recess time, which is directly before lunch or right after lunch. All staff and students were given sunglasses and stickers by the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont to celebrate the event. A track was measured out on the softball field: 8 laps equaled a mile. Some of the younger students went for records and logged in 20 laps (They chose to run some of the time). Two of the second-grade boy were so excited to keep on going they asked to continue during their physical education time. They were allowed to join another walking group and continued until they logged in 35 laps (over 4 1/4 miles). Above, BTS middle school students -- from left, Aiden Hale, Riley Deth, Quinn Stevens, Jack Clarner and Ryan Ware -- walked about a mile or more during the National Walk At Lunch Day.
