- Not riding the bus to school, as a kid, usually meant you overslept.
But on Wednesday morning, some students got up a little early just to miss the bus.
Wednesday was "Bike or Walk to School Day."
The celebration promotes healthy habits and is a chance for kids to learn how to get to school safely.
"I really enjoyed [learning] about crossing guards and learning about walking across the street whenever you're on the wrong side," said Kelsey Yunkers, a Central Intermediate School 4th grader.
Kids who didn't take the bus Wednesday morning were also helping their school.
Each student earned a mile just by walking or riding a bike.
Those miles could get the school entered into a raffle.
"We are going to try to get a lot of people to ride their bike to school for like miles kind of, and then we're going to add them up and hopefully we're in first place again like we were last time," said Chloe Felde, another Central Intermediate School 4th grader.
Schools had to meet the goal of 100 miles to earn an entry.
Northwoods LEAN will draw two schools for $500 cash prizes.
