This week Wolf Canyon is part of a program to Walk, Ride or Roll to school. Help our school win up to $1,000 for school supplies just by carpooling, walking, biking, or taking the bus to school. Here’s how. First, create a free iCommute SchoolPool account at iCommuteSD.com. Next, walk, ride, carpool or take the bus to school each day this week. Finally, log your trips online using the iCommute TripTracker tool and you’ll be automatically entered into drawings for great prizes. The top three schools with the highest percentage of alternative commute trips logged will win $1,000. To learn more visit iCommuteSD.com or call 511 and say “SchoolPool.”
