Big Sky Elementary School is seeking support for a complete Kindergarten PE Program, including a fleet of 24 Strider AKB-Specific Bikes, helmets, pedal conversion kits, one Strider 20 Bike for teacher instruction, and curriculum.
PE Teacher, Molly Reas, is excited to see kids rolling in the classroom soon. Molly says: "I have been a teacher within the Billings Public Schools for 19 years. Currently, I teach students enrolled in Kindergarten through 5th grade. I am also the President of a local non-profit organization called PEAK (Providing Enhanced Activities for Kids) that offers free after school fitness clubs to our elementary aged students. I am highly invested in the overall health and physical fitness of our children. My passion is in providing every child with the gift of loving exercise and growing up to enjoy living an active lifestyle. I am highly motivated in continuing to work toward creating an environment that will lead my students to success and learn to love physical activity from a very young age. Our current population at Big Sky Elementary consists of over fifty percent of our students qualifying for free and reduced lunches. With this status, comes a very large portion of our kids who may have never had the opportunity to own and/or learn how to ride a bike. The “All Kids Bike” program would be a huge success with our students. Our Health Enhancement classes are tailored to the needs of each and every one of our kiddos. From the moment they walk through our doors, they are our children and we are completely invested in their achievements. Already, the principal and teachers love the idea of us implementing the program and support me a hundred percent. I have both the facilities to administer and the drive to ensure that our students benefit from the “All Kids Bike” program."
All Kids Bike® is a national movement led by the Strider® Education Foundation, Inc. to place Kindergarten PE Learn-To-Ride Programs into public schools for free, using donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations. All Kids Bike is on a mission to teach every child in America how to ride a bike in kindergarten PE class.
