Washington Park Elementary School is seeking support for a fleet of 26 bikes, helmets, kickstands and curriculum.
Our mission at Washington Park Elementary school is: Together We Make a Difference. I would like to bring us together to make a difference through bike riding. We believe that introducing a Learn to Ride curriculum to our students will make an everlasting impact on their lives and our community. It has come to our realization that many students in our district do not know how to ride a bike. Many students state that they do not own a bike or do not have a safe place to ride. This opportunity will not only safely teach students starting in KDG how to ride a bike, but will boost their self confidence, fitness levels and leave them with that feeling of freedom that many adults remember having when looking back on their own childhood experiences of riding their bikes. - Julie Fuerst, Health & PE Teacher
