Adams Expanding Popular Bike Program

An inflow of private grant monies is poised to help Adams Elementary School expand its popular bicycle program to all grade levels this spring, as well as launch programs for 2nd graders at Franklin and McKinley elementary schools. At Adams, the four-year-old program started with 1st and 2nd graders and has since expanded through 6th, with older students brushing up on road rules and mentoring younger grade-schoolers through the basics. Now, with help from an anonymous donor, Adams kindergarteners will get helmets and two-dozen pedal-less push-bikes. Adams PE teacher Julie Churchman shared the program’s growing success story this week at the National Bike Summit in Washington, D.C.
