This project, “My School in Motion”, is being funded through a grant GVF received through PennDOT’s Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside.

Walking and biking to school helps address traffic congestion while helping improve the health and productivity of students. This program also helps identify physical obstacles to safe walking and biking within the Township, which assists in prioritizing infrastructure improvements. 

Biking and pedestrian safety will be incorporated into the curriculum's for 5th and 6th graders while 7th and 8th graders will explore the links between biking/ walking and environmental effects, math and civic involvement.  

 

Valley Forge Middle School has partnered with GVF to promote walking and biking to school and instructing the next generation of commuters on the value of walking and biking as an alternate mode of travel.

On October 15th, GVF hosted a kickoff event! This outdoor assembly encouraged students to walk and bike to school and included an introduction to the program and the club.
