Dear Principal Majeed,

This year, 58 applicants from around New Jersey received recognition. 15

The Safe Routes to School Program encourages students to walk and bike to school. Communities and schools that participate in the program benefit from healthier and more active children, less traffic congestion, better air quality and fewer traffic conflicts near schools. You are part of a great process in making your community a better place.
Meadowlink will be awarding you for your participation. We hope you can be present to accept your award. Again, congratulations on your achievement! We look forward to continuing to work with you on Safe Routes to School initiatives.
The best to you and your school,
Safe Routes to School
Thank you so much for sharing this great news.
The Tuscan School community deeply appreciates the support and guidance that we received from Meadowlink for our Safe Routes to School Program. The First Step Recognition Award represents the dedication and outstanding efforts of Tuscan Safe Routes Parent Coordinators Candice Davenport and Camilla Zelevansky. Through their hard work Tuscan now has a growing number of Walking School Bus Routes with trained parent volunteer "drivers". Tuscan School is also fortunate to have a broad-base of support from Maplewood Town Council and a number of local community organizations.
Through our ongoing efforts and continued support from Tuscan's parents, students, teachers and staff our shared vision for healthier and more active children, less traffic congestion, better air quality and fewer traffic conflicts near Tuscan School will be achieved.
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” ― Lao Tzu
It is such an honor for Tuscan School to be recognized for taking the first step.
Thank you all for the First Step Level Recognition award and thank you for your support.
