They will receive a free, Bill Roberts Bobcat RFID ZapTag that gets scanned each school day. Students earn prizes based on the number of times they walk, bike, scoot, skate to school. Prizes are given out once a month In addition, parents can register their student’s tag for free, on this page, to receive notification by text, e-mail or voice mail when the student has arrived on campus!

“Current researchers have found that children who were more physically fit had higher grades in math and language classes, as well as higher overall GPAs, compared with children who were less physically active… Other results showed that kids who were more aerobically fit had better language skills than kids who weren’t as fit. How do you do that? Make exercise fun and support physical education at school.” Go Boltage - Help your kids walk, scoot, bike, or skate to school.
