Roberto Clemente Elementary School
Newark, NJ
Roberto Clemente Elementary School is seeking support for a complete Kindergarten PE Program, including a fleet of 32 Strider AKB-Specific Bikes, helmets, pedal conversion kits, one Strider 20 Bike for teacher instruction, and curriculum.
  
 

PE Teacher, Paul Bayona, is excited to see kids rolling in the classroom soon. Paul says: "I am the Physical Education & Health teacher at Roberto Clemente Elementary School. Upon hearing about this program, I knew I had to take the opportunity and apply on behalf of my students. While working for a low socioeconomic district I have been made aware of the many opportunities many of our scholars are missing. Many students have never had the opportunity to ride a bike, let alone have one.

My aspiration is to be able to provide my students with exposure to opportunities that they might necessary not have otherwise. Something as small as learning how to ride a bike can make a great impact in their lives. I would also like for them to learn that riding a bike can be a great form of exercise and a means of transportation as well. Our school motto is to build a S.T.R.O.N.G foundation for tomorrows leaders and what better way to start than by providing them with basic skills. This opportunity will not only mean a lot to our scholars but to our school community alike.
"
