    Happy Bike to School Month!

    May is the time to get out your wheels and get outside. Track the minutes you ride on a calendar from Cascade Bicycle Club (https://tinyurl.com/2017BikeCalendar) and turn it in by June 2 for prizes.

    We’ll have several other things going on during the month to help keep you excited about biking.

    May 10: National Bike to School Day! Kids all over the nation are encouraged to ride their bikes to school. Join a Cascadia bike train or bike from home to your school bus stop. Treats will be available at the bike racks in front of the school, plus coffee for any teacher who bikes to school and checks in! To find a bike train, please watch the Facebook page or email Lynne or Megan.

    Plus, we will have themed Bike Fridays at the bike rack in front of the school with check-ins, snacks, and activities.  Student may always check in for pedaling to school.  Students may also check in for riding to a school bus stop  - just stop by with your helmet.

    May 5: Pump it Up Party. Kick off the month with a bike pump check-in. We’ll check tires and helmets and show you how to inflate your tires.

    May 12: Helmet Decoration Party. Get crafty with pipe cleaners and ribbons to make your helmet stand out. If you biked to your bus stop, bring your helmet after you get off the bus!

    May 19: Spirit Day. Cascadia Spirit/red and black day. Wear your school colors, and we’ll have more decorations for your bike. This is also Bike to Work Day, so there will be a bike train that meets near Greg’s Cycles in Green Lake.

    May 26: Bike Charms + Inner Tube Bracelet Party. Make a recycled bike tube bracelet and add a bike charm to mark the final Friday of May.

    June 2: Calendar turn in Day. Lynne and Megan will be at the bike racks on Friday, June 2 to collect completed Cascade Bike to School calendars. If you miss us before school, calendars can be turned in to the main office or to Mrs. B or Mr. D.

    Parents, watch the Thursday note and the Facebook page for more details. If you would like to help out or learn more about a bike train, please email Lynne Peck Theis or Megan Hazen, and we’ll be happy to tell you more. We’d welcome company on bike rides or at the bike rack check in station. Happy Bike to School Month!
