On Tuesday, July 15, 2014, Urbana School District #116 teachers, staff, and students, along with several other civic organizations, will participate in a Walk As One outing for the school district.
USD #116 is working with the City of Urbana, Urbana Police, and the Champaign Community Coalition to bring volunteers together for the Walk As One event in the neighborhood around Prairie Elementary and Urbana Early Childhood schools. “We pride ourselves on maintaining open lines of communication with our families and the community,” said Deputy Superintendent Dr. Jennifer Ivory-Tatum. “The Walk is yet another way to share positive information and resources through a different home to school connection that we have not tried before. Hopefully, families and residents will learn more about our community partners as well as more ways we support student learning."
