Arlington Public Schools held its annual Walk and Bike to School Day today (Wednesday), encouraging the tens of thousands of students in the system to avoid driving or bussing to school.

Every APS school participated in the event, according to APS spokesman Frank Bellavia, and two local farms donated apples that were distributed to six different schools.

APS’ Department of Instruction also held reading events at two schools, and students were encouraged to bring in books for a book swap.
