Walking School Bus -- Brochure Pg. 1 and 2

The Walking School Bus, originally coordinated by the Joint Committee for Children’s Healthcare in Everett, Energize Everett, and the Everett Public Schools in 2010, provides a safe way for children and parents in the community to walk to school together. It teaches public safety measures while encouraging physical activity to our City’s youth.

Parent Advisory Group -- KUBA  
In an effort to gain valuable input from Everett's parents, the Joint Committee formed a parent advisory council in the spring of 1997.  The Council, known as K.U.B.A. (Kids United By Awareness) developes awareness, campaigns and organizes fund raisers.  KUBA serves as the Joint Committee's link to the parents of public and private school-age children.
