This spring, our school will participate in an online trip tracking program to encourage families to walk, bike, carpool, take mass transit, or park and walk to school. This Hub system is free and allows users to track their active commuting, earn awards, and see the environmental impact they can make with their choices. We invite your family to join us in this healthy initiative!
Lee Environmentalism And Fitness, or LEAF, is open to all students in K-6th. Students will learn about safe routes from different neighborhoods around Lee, ways to participate if you live farther away from Lee, and how the check into the Hub system to receive credit for their round trips. Students should save their scan tags to use each year and ensure that their name is still visible and new teacher information is updated on the back.
With the launch of LEAF, we are very focused on safety. The idea behind LEAF is not to eliminate adults from the equation. We want to encourage families to actively commute together to ensure safety and to build awareness with ongoing conversations. For some families, adults may always need to accompany. Our goal is to create a culture change, where active commuting becomes the preferred mode of transportation, traffic is reduced, and safety is improved for all.
