Next Week is Bike to School Week

The warmer weather and longer days make spring a great time of year to walk, bike or roll to school. Using these modes of active transportation helps to reduce congestion, improve air quality and promote health. Students who travel to school actively arrive at school more alert, focused and ready to learn.

For these reasons, our school is participating in Bike to School Week by organizing the following event. We invite your child to participate.

During the week of May 31st students will put a sticker on our tracking chart and will get a bonus ballot to entry in the draw prize box.

Our yearly BIKE TO SCHOOL DAY is May 31st.  All students who ride their bike this day will get a ballot for the draw prizes.  Upon arrival please lock the bike to one of the bike racks. Once these are full we ask that bikes get locked around the perimeter of the yard on the fence.  

Bike to School Week is a celebration of cycling and active transportation. Schools, public health offices, municipalities and regions across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area are coordinating activities focused on Bike to School Week, to promote and support cycling to school.
