Attention Natomas Park Elementary 4th - 6th grade students
A new and improved way to walk to school! We are using bar code scanning technology to log students' bicycling, walking and skating to and from school. Walking Wednesdays Trip Scanner can send parents a text, phone call, or email notifying them that their child arrived at school. Students earn "Boot Bucks" and can track their miles, calories spent, money saved and carbon reduction.
