About 250 Lewis and Clark Middle School eighth-graders arrived at the Billings Public Library on Thursday much the same way their forebears got anywhere: the students walked the 2.2 mile route in about 45 minutes.
Four degrees. I trudged through several inches of slippery snow on Lewis Avenue toward my Thursday morning appointment in the principal’s office. A young man sporting black shorts strode through the middle school doors behind me.

Lewis and Clark Middle School students, faculty and parents participated in International Walk to School Day in order to encourage more active and healthy lifestyles.
