BIKE AND WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK IS HAPPENING THIS WEEK
The goal of this week is to promote biking as a great form of transportation that makes our bodies and environment healthier. Ride your bike or walk to school this week. When you arrive, please sign in at your classroom for each day you ride or walk to school to be entered in a raffle to win a fantastic prize. Students who are not able to walk or bike to school can substitute a car ride at home with a bike ride or walk. They can bring in a signed note from their parents that should be given to the teacher for an entry. The more bike rides or walks taken to substitute a car or bus ride the more chances to win the raffle prize. On Friday, the winner(s) will be announced by Principal Rossow.
