Parker School District is seeking support for a fleet of 24 bikes, helmets, kickstands, and curriculum.
As the K-9 Physical Education instructor in Parker, I am always looking for new resources to help teach students skills that will keep them healthy throughout their life. The All Kids Bike program would be a fantastic resource to teach Kindergarten students to bike. Not only will they be able to learn the skills to bike, but we also hope to instill a love to exercise and specifically to bike.
Many students learn how to bike at home. They have a love of biking and even family support in biking for exercise. But there are many kids who do not have access to bikes or someone to help get them started at a young age and instill a love to bike. This is where the Parker PE program could make sure all students receive both the skills and encouragement to find a love of biking.
Lastly, being able to teach young students to bike would be something that would be really fun for both them and me. Kindergarten is a time of skill acquisition and discovery of how amazing our bodies are. I believe being able to teach young students to bike would give them a confidence in themselves that can be transferred to other areas of their life. I would be very excited to help and guide them in this process. - Lance Friesen, PE Teacher
