Lace up your Nikes, slip on your Vans, dust off the skateboard, grab the scooter, ride the bike, but don’t forget your kids this Wednesday, October 4, 2017. It’s Ivanhoe’s International Walk to School Day!
All modes of personal propulsion are welcome! AND we will have a special treat – there will be a LAPD BIKE PATROL ESCORT!
All you have to do is walk, ride, scoot with your kid and and meet other parents and kids at the intersections of Glendale & Rowena, or Hyperion & Rowena, or walk along W. Silver Lake Drive (from Balmer to Moreno to Hawick to Bright to Tesla to Angus).
LAPD WILL MEET US AT THE TRIANGLE AT ANGUS and W. SILVERLAKE at 7:50 AM so we can all walk to the school together. START THE DAY ON A HEALTHY NOTE and WALK TO SCHOOL with your kids. Let’s go IVANHOE! Any questions reach out to Chris Hogan firstname.lastname@example.org.

4 ways to help victims in Texas and Florida

No. 2 — Support a charity working for relief
- Houston Independent School District: http://www.houstonisd.org/Page/164281

No. 3 — Donate diapers
From NPR: “As Harvey delivers its wrath to the Gulf area, relief organizations are stepping in to provide assistance to thousands of evacuees. They’re providing food, water and shelter. But one thing that they don’t always provide are diapers. That can be a real problem for parents of young children.” That means, diaper donations would be greatly appreciated by anyone with a young child.
No. 4 — Help homeless pets
Thanks for all your support!
