Embracing the morning by walking to school
October 5, 2017 at 5:32 a.m.
It’s a busy time of the day for commuters, so a crossing guard stands ready to make walking in front of the Hutch entrance and exit ramps a safe endeavor.
Give us a wave! Yinghao Wu (right) gives a happy wave as he, his 7-year-old daughter Melody, and friends John, 7, and Rosemarie Marciano arrive early to school. The second graders have known each other since preschool.
To celebrate their accomplishment of surviving the morning walk, students sign their names on a poster and receive a mini Converse shoe keychain.
Who is walking whom? Scott Fratangelo and his fifth-grade daughter Emilia Grace are pulled along by Lucy, their excited pup.
Fifth grader Rocco Brunetti, 10, is fashionable with his sunglasses as he and his father Robert take the last few steps before getting to the school campus.
Excited to start the day, 5-year-old Blake Sager runs ahead of his father Cameron and his younger brother Ryan, 2.
Hundreds of Bruno M. Ponterio Ridge Street School students, parents and siblings flood the sidewalks during the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 4 for International Walk to School Day.
