The North Plainfield K-8 schools started 2017 on the right foot by continuing its monthly Walking Wednesday program. Led by Safe Routes to School Committee champion Cathy Kobylarz, principal of Stony Brook Elementary School, the North Plainfield schools have had an active walk to school program for 7 years. The school district also partners with RideWise to celebrate its crossing guards during a spring recognition event. Students participate in Walking Wednesday even during the winter months. More than 30 students walked to Stony Brook School on January 4th.
