Bears on the Go

The PTA's Bears on the Go program has started! The purpose of this program is to encourage students to ride their bikes or walk to school more often throughout the school year. 

 

To participate, each month you will log the number of times your student rides or walks to school onto this website under Online Forms. Fun prizes will be awarded for participation.

"There's a special bond between kids and bikes that can never be broken. Riding a bike is a rite of passage, a passport to worlds beyond the front lawn. Bikes represent fun, freedom, and fresh air -- everything that's good about being a kid. Moreover, biking is a healthy pastime that kids will never outgrow. Here are some of the other benefits of cycling:

 

  • Developing strength, balance, and overall fitness
  • Burning up calories
  • Strengthening the heart, lungs, and lower-body muscles and bones
  • Developing and strengthening the muscles surrounding the knees without impact


But biking boasts other benefits as well. Children of all shapes, sizes, and abilities can ride a bike. Most important, bicycling is a healthy outdoor activity that the entire family can enjoy together."
