Gilcrest Elementary School is seeking support for a complete Kindergarten PE Program, including a fleet of 20 Strider AKB-Specific Bikes, helmets, pedal conversion kits, one Strider 20 Bike for teacher instruction, and curriculum.
Principal, Tad McDonald along with PE Teacher, John Reid, are excited to see kids rolling in the classroom soon! Tad says: "Not only are we both very excited about this opportunity, but we think it will be an excellent first step to a program we have in 2nd grade that provides each student with a new bike, helmet and lock. In addition, we're looking to pilot a program to train volunteers to make basic repairs to bikes to keep our students from losing access to their bikes based on simple breakdowns. Thank you for considering us as a participating school."
