WESTPORT -

Students in Westport spent some time outdoors before the start of the school day Wednesday morning.

Hundreds of students from Kings Highway Elementary School participated in the International Walk to School Day.

The students were joined by parents, teachers, and staff in a half mile loop around the school.

Educators say it's a great way to promote exercise and get kids moving.

This is the school's fifth year participating in the event.
