Bike to School Week at Ross Road:  June 4th – June 8th

Join us Monday morning at 8:10am for our Bike to School Week Kick Off!

Students & parents are invited to the field at Ross Road to bike around to music, watch Wade Simmons demo bike ramps, get free bike tune-ups offered by Lynn Valley Bikes, and watch parents vs pros in a wheely competition!  There will also be snacks and small prizes for all participants. 

Bike to School each day for an entry ballot to win a New Bike!  Teachers will be taking participation surveys each morning.  Each day a student bikes to school they will be given an entry ballot to win the bike.  Ballots can be put in the draw box located at the office where you can also view the new bike & the bike draw will take place at the Spring Carnival – June 8th!


Class Tennis Parties – will be awarded to the primary & intermediate classes with the most active transportation counts.  Tennis BC will be providing all instruction & equipment on June 11th. 


Live too far away – consider parking farther away from school & biking, walking, or rolling in to school :)
