Aurora Frontier and Safe Kids Denver Celebrate
International Walk to School Day

On Wednesday, Oct. 4, more than 500 students at Aurora Frontier K-8 will join schools all over the world to celebrate International Walk to School Day. 

Aurora Frontier is one of two schools in Colorado chosen by Safe Kids Denver to participate in International Walk to School Day special activities.  The school was selected for its active participation in student safety activities. The school was awarded a $20,000 grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation to fund safety educational programs. Students are putting into practice safe pedestrian and bicycle behaviors learned in the classroom.

Volunteers from Safe Kids Denver and FedEx will be at the school to promote walking and bicycle safety and to demonstrate important safety behaviors. "Danger Rangers" will welcome students to school along with police officers, firefighters and school staff at 7:45 a.m. 

Last year, more than 3 million walkers from around the world walked to school together for various reasons – all hoping to create communities that are safe places to walk.
