Golden Sneaker Day

WHAT IS GOLDEN SNEAKER DAY?

On Golden Sneaker Day, all Jefferson students are encouraged to travel to school in a green way - such as by walking, biking, running, scootering, skateboarding, carpooling, busing, or riding MUNI.  Green commuting is a simple way we can all do our part to take care of our beautiful planet!  It is an easy way to promote and support safer and more accessible streets, healthier habits, and cleaner air.  Jefferson holds Golden Sneaker Day on the first Wednesday of every month during the school year, rain or shine, including in October when Walk & Roll to School Day coincides with Golden Sneaker Day and we have both!

 

NEED TO DRIVE YOUR KIDS TO SCHOOL?

We have the perfect solution for you.  Drive to Mother's Meadow in Golden Gate Park (on the north side of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive about one block east of 19th Avenue), and park just long enough to let your kids get out and meet up with our Garden Coordinator, A.J. Cucalon.  A.J. will lead a group of students safely from Mother's Meadow to school, and this counts as traveling to school in a green way in the Golden Sneaker Day competition!  Drop off students with A.J. at the lamppost on MLK at the top of Mother's Meadow any time between 8:10 and 8:25 a.m. on Golden Sneaker Day.  At 8:25, A.J. and the students will start walking to school.

Or just park in Golden Gate Park, and you can walk your kids to school from there in 10 minutes - that distance counts as walking to school in the Golden Sneaker Day competition.

 

WHY ON EARTH IS IT CALLED GOLDEN SNEAKER DAY?

The class with the largest percentage of green commuters on Golden Sneaker Day wins the right to hang an actual pair of golden sneakers, in all their gorgeous, glittering, golden glory, over the entrance to their classroom for the whole month.  Every Jefferson student who commutes to school in a green way on Golden Sneaker Day also earns a special sticker to show off their participation.
