Elk Point- Jefferson School District is seeking support for a fleet of 22 bikes, helmets, kickstands and curriculum.
"The mission of the Elk Point-Jefferson School District is to provide an environment a safe environment where students will be empowered with knowledge and skills to successfully navigate life’s transitions and challenges.” Our mission statement is what drives our staff and community to continually provide what is best for our students. The Elk Point-Jefferson School District has started to work with our Community Wellness Coalition to promote our sidewalks, bike paths and parks around town. We are looking for ways to get our students outside and to be more active. We have had many discussions about how riding bike is becoming a lost skill, and we are wanting to prevent that from happening in our community. I have seen what the Strider Bike can do for my own family and want all our students at the Elk Point-Jefferson School District to see what the Strider Bike can do for them. The All Kids Bike Kindergarten PE Program can be a great addition to our curriculum here at Elk Point-Jefferson. This program can be implemented with our Junior Kindergarten, which has about 20 students. I feel that this would be a valuable asset to our PE curriculum here at Elk Point-Jefferson.
All Kids Bike® is a national movement led by the Strider® Education Foundation 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.
