Laurel School District 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, David Swecker, is excited to see kids rolling in the classroom soon. David says: "I work in the Laurel School District with third, fourth and kindergarten students. Last year I was able to work with a third grade student and teach her how to ride a bike. She was very embarrassed that she could not ride one while all her friends could. With that being said when I saw the opportunity to teach my kindergarten classes to ride a bike I became very interested.
I see the All Kids Bike movement as a great opportunity to get students moving more outside of
school. I also believe that it will give many students more self confidence in themselves. If I was
able to get this PE program it would impact seven PE classes which would be about 140
students that could learn to ride a bike. It is my hope that by the end of the program all 140 of
my kindergarten students will be able to ride their bike and I am confident it could lead to more
families being physically active and riding their bikes together."
