Bike to School Month | May 1-31
Wedgwood Elementary competes with other schools, and classrooms compete with each other to see who can rack up the most minutes of bicycling during the month.
:: Any biking anywhere counts – it doesn’t have to be to and from school. So get those bikes tuned up and those helmets checked and get ready to go!
:: On April 30, look for a print calendar in your child's school folder where you can track the minutes for the month (you'll eventually turn it in).
:: Wedgwood Bike to School Day (date TBD); if your child bikes on that day, look for booths around the playground where they can sign in and get entered to win prizes. We hope to get as much participation as possible that day.
Have fun! Be safe! And plan to turn in your filled out bike logs on May 31st.
