On October 7th, the coaches will meet participating students and families who would like to Walk to School beginning at 7:00 am and begin walking at 7:15 am. All interested parties will meet on the corner of Chambray and Harrisburg by the baseball backstop. We are “Walking To School” together to emphasize the importance of getting good exercise and getting our bodies and brains ready for a great day of learning.

We will follow the large sidewalk around Cap Stone Park and walk to the front entrance of the school where we will take a group picture of all our participants. Hope to see everyone there on Wednesday, October 7th.

Family Walk Night

Thursday, Oct. 8th, 5:30-6:30pm

2520 Scenic Drive

Plano, TX

Family Walk Night is an annual event at Andrews Elementary sponsored by Coach Landingham, Coach Parlin and Coach Willeford. We provide music, healthy facts, and popsicles for all who come out and join us. This is a great way to get exercise and have fun meeting the coaches and other families in our community.

A walking and jogging course will be sectioned off around the East side of our school. Parents are encouraged to attend with your students, but Please leave your furry friends at home. We would appreciate it if you would arrive by 5:30 and use the entire hour for exercising. If you have any questions, please contact the coaches.

Thank you for supporting the PE department and we hope to see you there!
