Join in the spring A2 STEAM Bike to School Day to encourage and
support young people to bike to school!

A2 STEAM Bike to School Day
Wednesday, May 3, 2017
 (Rain date Thursday, May 4)

All bikers are invited to arrive at the back of school near snack table at 7:55 am for a group photo!
Bike Route Planning: The National Center for Safe Routes to School provides helpful information, including safe route planning, at walkbiketoschool.org/. Please consider planning a group walk or bike with other families in your neighborhood.

Bike Safety: Parents/guardians are responsible for children’s safety traveling between home and school, so please accompany your young bikers to school.  All children must have a helmet and a bike lock. A2 STEAM is not responsible for unsecured bikes. Please do not leave bikes at school overnight.  Let your bus driver know if your child won’t be riding. PARENTS: BE A GOOD EXAMPLE—USE CROSSWALKS, SIDEWALKS AND WEAR A HELMET!

Looking for Volunteers: Five Parents/Grandparents/Guardians are needed to be stationed at key crosswalks and corners to help our students safely cross the streets and we are looking for 9 volunteers to help with snacks, stickers and incentives.
Please sign-up here to volunteer.

Questions? John Beeson, emailme0617@yahoo.com - WBTS Day coordinator OR Nicole Chardoul, nicolechardoul@gmail.com - Safe Routes to School co-coordinator

Tips and tricks for riding with kids: Riding with kids slows you down, and that’s not a bad thing. Beyond creating future bike riders, ingraining street skills, and engaging in physical activity, biking with kids is fun. Here’s how to make the most of it.
