PE Teacher, Jarred Krueger, is excited to see kids rolling in the classroom soon. Jarred says: The All Kids Bike program would a make a major impact to the students of Parkview Elementary. In today's society with more and more students becoming sedentary and suffering from childhood obesity, this program would help establish lifelong healthy skills that students would be able to use outside of the school environment for the rest of their lives. For some students here in Parkview that either don't have the parental support, or financial means to learn to ride a bike, the opportunity to be able to develop the skills and partake in such a program would be substantial for them.

Even this week while teaching jump roping to my Kindergarten, first, and second grade classes I did a little survey to see how many students knew how to jump rope or to ride a bike without training wheels. In all classes there was a huge chunk that either had little to no experience on a bicycle. This program would not only benefit in developing and learning proper riding skills, but would develop courage and confidence in trying something new, and teaching a recreational skill that can be enjoyed for the rest of their lives with family and friends.
