On Wear Yellow Day (WYD) students, parents, and staff are encouraged to wear yellow clothing and use active transportation (walking, cycling, rolling, bus) to and from school.
Fall 2017 participation grew from 17 schools this spring to 26 schools. Great job everyone! Try to incorporate walking/biking not only to & from school but also in everyday life!
Not only is this a great way to be physical active, it also helps decrease our carbon footprint(s). Let’s continue to show the world that Hamilton cares about the environment and our health!
