Do you go before school starts? Do you go as a group? My students are 98% free lunch and I have always wanted to do this, but never knew how to do it safely.
All 1 - 5 classroom teachers go on the same day/time. We each go with a partner - either a special teacher, assistant, or a K teacher (they don't have their classes yet, still testing). The Stroll committee mails postcards that tell when we are coming (4PM - 7PM) so they have advance notice, it's usually the Thursday before school starts on Monday. I have a city map and highlight all the streets, then plot a course, it took about 2.5 hours to see all my class tonight. The kids LOVE it - they talk about it all year. They are watching to see what car pulls into their driveway, and they come RUNNING!!! It's a fun night. Our superintendent came to see us off today. We love it.
