Mount Vernon scholars participate in International Walk to School Day

To begin the Mount Vernon City School District’s yearlong health and fitness challenge, students were asked to walk to school on Wednesday, October 4, 2023, International Walk to School Day.  

The recently founded Health, Fitness and Wellness Committee will bring health, fitness, and wellness education to the community through fun fitness activities to participate in throughout the school year.
