Students at Franklin Elementary School in Westfield recently participated in Walk to School Day, sponsored by the B.R.A.K.E.S. (Bikers, Runners And Kids are Entitled to Safety) group. This annual event helps cut back on traffic congestion and pollution while also encouraging exercise. Students wore red and signed a "We Walked" banner upon arrival at Franklin.

The school also held a raffle where students could win the company of a special escort and an event t-shirt.
