Burcham Earns City's Golden Wheel Honor

The Long Beach City Council recently honored Burcham Elementary School with the city’s first-ever Golden Wheel Award for Long Beach Walk to School Week.

A National Walk or Ride Your Bike to School Day is held once a year, but Burcham has gone many steps further, with students, staff and parents gathering every Wednesday morning to walk laps on the campus before school starts.

“It's been really fun,” Burcham Principal Chris Eckert said.  “It's just a good way of getting kids out, moving.”
