Bike to School Week May 30th to June 3rd

Pump up your tires, dust off your helmet and make sure you have a lock.

There will be a sign up outside the office for you to record your rides.  Each day during Bike to School Week, members will check in with Mrs. Peters and her helpers in the office.  If they have ridden their bike to school they will get a sticker to put on our poster.

We did well last year for Bike to School Week, let’s do better this year!
