Keep up the Momentum!

BTSW finished with a flourish last week. LVE consistently had half the school arrive on bikes! It would be great to see those bike racks continue to be filled during June.

On Thursday, the very popular Prize Wheel was brought out again and kids and parents were also able to get their bikes safety checked by Lynn Valley Bikes. After school, students came together to decorate their bikes in red, black and white for the Lynn Valley Day Parade.

Bright and early Friday morning, the BTSW Organizers drew the names of 25 lucky grand prize winners. Prizes included bike helmets, bike lights, riding socks and a bike lock. All winners have been notified and the list of winners has been posted on the school’s whiteboard.

The final tally of which class had the most active transportation was also tabulated and one class from both the Primary and Intermediate Divisions was awarded a class-wide prize.

This year, those two classes were the Grade 4/5’s of Division 6 and the Grade 1/2’s of Division 10. Each student won a new Vancity bike light for their rides and can take a spin over to the Lynn Valley Dairy Queen for a complimentary ice-cream.

A huge thank you to the LVE school community for embracing this event and increasing their active transportation.

The LVPAC BTSW organizers would also like to thank:
