During the month of May, students were encouraged to walk and ride bikes to school as an alternative to riding in cars. This is designed to reduce traffic and auto emissions. Students at the school formed a bicycle club and a "walking school bus," where parents walked students to school in groups.
The presentation was made at the Menifee Union School District board meeting.
