Many reasons to smile

IMG_6915Today there were a LOT of really excited teachers and staff in LVE’s halls.  One teacher told me that this was her favourite day – that it was so nice to have an amazing lunch provided for them, especially during a very hectic time of year.

But everyone had something else to smile about too… because WE WON.  Yes, out of the 181 lower mainland schools that participated in HUB’s Bike to School Week we took it! Which means we won ANOTHER Giant bike to raffle off next year. Go Lynn Valley!

With almost 54% ridership Lynn Valley got top marks again, though one Vancouver school was hot on our wheels with 50% 🙂

To give Ross Road credit, they did beat us for total rides – 998 to our 928 – but being a bigger school they have that advantage. We creamed them in terms of overall ridership.  In fact, Braemar recorded the most trips of all schools at 1138 but again, they are a bigger school.  The title is ours for another year!

A big thank-you to the many volunteers who made the Staff Appreciation Lunch very special, especially lead organizer Cindy Lanctot.  You guys rock!
