I walked to school with lots of teachers and medical people and we held signs too and made a walking school bus.

Posters and signs made by students allow them to advertise their own thoughts and enthusiasm about their event, and they make photos of events more appealing and memorable. They can help to bring greater awareness to the event’s theme, whether that’s increasing physical activity, making it safer for walkers and bikers, the environmental benefits of walking and biking or something else.
Encourage students to think about Walk to School Day or Bike to School Day means to them, and then have them create their own sign to carry during the event or display at school.
Another solution is to use a pre-designed banner.
