Northborough – The Marion E. Zeh Elementary School held its monthly Walk & Bike to School day April 29.

Despite the cold and rainy weather, some students rode their bikes or walked to school with their friends and family to support the event.

“We do the Walk & Bike to School events for a few reasons,” said Principal Sue Whitten, who organizes the event. “One to help children and their families get exercise together before school, which helps them get centered for the day. Secondly it helps people become more conscious about using a non-carbon footprint, through not driving. Thirdly it helps build community,” said Whitten.

Each month the event has a theme. Earth Day was the theme of this month's event. Participating students signed their name to a school-designed poster and received a charm for their involvement.

May's Walk & Bike to School Day will feature a Memorial Day theme.
