Paul Cuffee Students Celebrate International Walk to School Day

Paul Cuffee’s Physical Education teacher, “Coach” Marlon Mussington coordinated the Lower School’s Walk to School Day event to emphasize pedestrian safety and the value of daily physical activity.

Representatives from the Governor’s Office presented a citation acknowledging our school’s focus on physical fitness, safety, health and wellness. The Commissioner of Education spoke with an eager audience of K-5 students and their teachers to kick-off their 2 mile trek to and from the State House steps. Much to our delight, Senator Ana B. Quezada joined our walking group in support of Coach Mussington’s initiative.

An especially warm and beautiful October day set the stage for this memorable occasion. Providence Police officers were present to safeguard our students at each and every intersection.
