  • Walk to School Day

    Walk to School Day

    All day
    10-04-17

    Thousands of students in more than 200 schools across Minnesota will participate in International Walk and Bike to School Day Oct. 4. The annual event, sponsored by Minnesota Safe Routes to School, encourages students and parents to get outside, increase their physical activity, teach pedestrian and bicycle safety, reduce traffic congestion and strengthen connections between families, schools and communities while walking and biking to school.

    “Walking and biking to school or work are great ways to skip traffic, get a little exercise and enjoy beautiful Minnesota,” said Lt. Governor Tina Smith. “I encourage Minnesota students and their families to participate in Walk and Bike to School Day on Oct. 4. I hope to see you out there.”

    Dave Cowan, Walk and Bike to School Day coordinator, said this day gets families, schools and communities thinking about what it might be like if students in their neighborhoods walked and bicycled to school year-round.

    “The result is transformative,” said Cowan. “Safely walking and bicycling is an important life skill we should be teaching our youth. This day is a great way to encourage students to use that knowledge all through their lives while building physical activity into their daily routine.”

    He said schools can register their Walk and Bike to School Day event at www.walkbiketoschool.org.

    Participants can also join in the Walk to School Day photo contest by submitting photos on the MnSRTS Facebook page with the hashtag #mnwalks. Learn more at www.mnsaferoutestoschool.org under the current programs tab.

    Cowan said the event is an opportunity for children who typically ride a school bus and those who live in areas with bike friendly paths to school to walk and bike to school. Many schools participate in a “walking school bus” event by arranging for school buses to drop off students at a nearby park or other safe locations to finish the trip on foot. The drop-off option also can be used for students who are usually driven to school in private vehicles.

    Walk to School Day also encourages parents and community members to begin thinking about the walkability and bikeability of their neighborhoods. A walkability checklist helps walkers assess what makes the walking environment inviting and safe, and identify existing barriers. After the assessment, schools and communities can work to make a plan for improvements.

    2:00 p.m.

    Bart and Ross Sutter have established individual reputations as a musician and a writer, but when they perform as a pair their work has the kind of counterpoint and easy intimacy unique to sibling acts. A Sutter Brothers performance is a fun-filled blend of music, storytelling, and poetry, highlighting their small town, preacher’s kid roots and Scandinavian heritage.

    Poet, essayist, and writer Bart Sutter is the author of eight books and has had four plays produced. Awards for his writing include the George Morrison Artist Award for his many contributions to the arts in northeastern Minnesota, and three Minnesota Book Awards in three different categories.  In 2006, he was named the first Poet Laureate of Duluth.  He has received other awards from the Academy of American Poets, the Bush Foundation, and the Jerome Foundation.

    Bart was educated at Southwest Minnesota State University and Syracuse University.  He has taught at St. John’s University, University of Minnesota campuses in the Twin Cities and Duluth, and the University of Wisconsin in Superior. Considering Sutter’s work, the late Icelandic-American writer Bill Holm remarked, “Barton Sutter is so thoroughly a Minnesota Scandinavian that he becomes something larger, a type of American artist and culture maker, an emblem of us at our best.”

    Ross Sutter is best known as a singer of Scandinavian, Scottish, and Irish songs, and for his wide repertoire of American traditional and popular songs.   He accompanies himself on guitar, dulcimer, button accordion, and bodhran (the Irish goat-skin drum).  He has performed at numerous venues throughout the region and beyond, from concert halls to libraries and schools, from outdoor festivals to senior centers, and has appeared on “A Prairie Home Companion.” His music is featured on the recordings Walking on Air, Up the Raw, Crossing the Shannon, Hunger No more, and many others, including his popular children’s CD, Mama Will You Buy Me A Banana.

    Tuesday, October 17th
    12:30 p.m.

    Join us Tuesday, October 17th in the Slayton Library Community Room at 12:30 p.m. for a free concert. Refreshments will be served after the performance by the Slayton Friends of the Library.
    The Slayton Public Library will partner with the Slayton Senior citizen Center to provide $2.00 lunch before the performance for all attendees. Lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. Please call the Senior
    Center at 836-6762 to make lunch reservations.

    Bart and Ross Sutter have established individual reputations as a musician and a writer, but when they perform as a pair their work has the kind of counterpoint and easy intimacy unique to sibling acts. A Sutter Brothers performance is a fun-filled blend of music, storytelling, and poetry, highlighting their small town, preacher’s kid roots and Scandinavian heritage.

    Poet, essayist, and writer Bart Sutter is the author of eight books and has had four plays produced. Awards for his writing include the George Morrison Artist Award for his many contributions to the arts in northeastern Minnesota, and three Minnesota Book Awards in three different categories.  In 2006, he was named the first Poet Laureate of Duluth.  He has received other awards from the Academy of American Poets, the Bush Foundation, and the Jerome Foundation.
