Our Walk/Bike-to-School PTA Committee, in collaboration with the community-based Davis Bicycles School Committee and the City of Davis Street Smart Program, is hosting our annual Bike Safety Rodeo at the back bike rack (on the blacktop near the MPR/lunch tables). Parents must complete and sign the attached Consent Form for their kids to participate, and turn it into the office or bring it to the event. Your child should have a signed consent form, helmet, and bike (in good working order) to participate. The Bike Safety Rodeo is designed for children who have the basic skills of riding a bike (e.g. knowing, at a minimum, how to stop and start properly and how to take one hand off the handle bars to signal). PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: It takes a minimum of 12 volunteers to pull off this event. If you are able to help out starting at 1:00pm, please email/text the Bike/Walk-to-School Committee Chair Michael Hansen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-846-2556.
