Eno River Academy is seeking support for a complete Kindergarten PE Program, including a fleet of 22 Strider AKB-Specific Bikes, helmets, pedal conversion kits, one Strider 20 Bike for teacher instruction, and curriculum.
Admissions Director and Dean of Students, Morgana Hover, is excited to see kids rolling in the classroom soon. Morgana says, "The bikes will allow our school to provide instruction in biking and balance to these students each year. Our school utilizes a modified PBL (Project Based Learning) lens and a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) approach to our instruction in all grade levels across all disciplines. As we are a small charter school, we encourage exploration of lesser mainstream types of sports including, but not limited to, pickleball, tennis, and lacrosse. The All Kids Bike program will provide a gateway to allow our school to further explore other areas of individual athleticism in a group setting, such as biking and yoga. It will also allow our PE teacher further avenues with which to incorporate a project unit, and aspects of other disciplines into the Kindergarten curriculum from the very start of the student's educational careers.
The All Kids Bike Program will provide our kindergartners a special opportunity to enjoy a program specifically designed for them within our K-12 structure. Often, similarly structured specific programs our students get to participate in are geared for older grade levels. While these provide something for our students to look forward to, a program specifically for our youngest students will be a fun and enjoyable event for them as they begin their educational journey. Promoting our use of All Kids Bike will also be a wonderful selling point for our school as we recruit in the surrounding counties for our enrollment since none of the surrounding schools in our area currently utilize the 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.
