Carlos Santana Arts Academy is seeking support for a complete Kindergarten PE Program, including a fleet of 25 Strider AKB-Specific Bikes, helmets, pedal conversion kits, one Strider 20 Bike for teacher instruction, and curriculum.

Assistant Principal, Erika Lanning, is excited to see kids rolling in the classroom soon.  Erika says: Carlos Santana Arts Academy (CSAA), is a Public School Choice site operated out of the Local District Northwest, Monroe Cabinet Community of Schools in Los Angeles Unified School District. CSAA opened its doors in August of 2010. It promises to provide a unique educational opportunity that demonstrates an effective, exciting, and innovative collaboration between families and the community.

The vision of Santana is to develop a school where all students engage in academics, with arts at the core, providing multiple pathways to understanding and achievement for all learners. Santana’s mission is to prepare students for success in a diverse society and ever-changing world. The entire Santana community is committed to providing the necessary support and encouragement to develop the original thinkers, creative problem solvers, active, healthy, and technologically skilled leaders of tomorrow.

The All Kids Bike Program would benefit our students at Carlos Santana, as many do not have access to bikes in their homes. We are a low income, free lunch elementary school, where many families walk to school from the surrounding apartment buildings. Teaching the importance of physical activity and fitness is also an important aspect of being a leader, being destined for greatness, as we teach our student through our school pledge. We hope that our school will be chosen to be part of this amazing 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.
