You are invited to attend the kick-off event of the Menlo Park City School
District (MPCSD) annual speaker series. Jen Wolosin, Founder and Chair of
Parents for Safe Routes, will deliver "Between Home and School: Why Safe
Routes Matter and How to Make Them Happen." Following Jen's talk, there
will be a lively panel discussion featuring:

- Kirsten Keith, Menlo Park Mayor,
- Bianca Walser, Menlo Park Complete Streets Commission Chair,
- Theresa Vallez-Kelly, San Mateo County Safe Route to School Coordinator,
- Penny Ellson, Longtime Palo Alto Safe Routes Parent Champion.

In 1969, 50% of kids nationwide walked or biked to school and enjoyed the
benefits of healthier bodies and minds, increased independence and
confidence, and greater community connectedness. In contrast, just 13% of
American kids walked or biked to school in 2009. If you're tired of driving
your kids less than a mile to school, and/or are worried about traffic and
safety on our streets, come learn how many are advocating for children in
our community to be able to walk and bike to school safely, and be inspired
to join the Safe Routes movement.

- Tuesday, September 19th at 6:30pm
- Hillview Middle School, Performing Arts Center - 1100 Elder Ave., Menlo
Park, CA
- Free and open to the public
- Free onsite childcare (and pizza!) for potty trained children
- Light snacks and beverages provided
