HRM Bike week (June 2-11) is an opportunity to promote bicycle safety and inspire students to ride as part of a healthy and active lifestyle. Westmount school is excited to be taking part in it, and would like to invite all families to join us in this celebration by encouraging students to ride their bikes to school on Bike to School Day –scooters, skateboards, in-line skates are also welcome!
Our Bike to School Day Challenge will be on Thursday, June 8. Our rain date will be Monday, June 12.
All students who participate in Bike-to-School Day will get a chance to win one of ten $10 gift cards (courtesy of HRM) or, if their class has the highest participation, one of the two $25 gift cards from MEC-Mountain Equipment Coop!!
Attached is a handout on proper helmet fitting, basic safety information and signaling that we invite you to review with your child.
