As a reminder to parents of 2nd graders, Crow Island’s 2nd Grade Bike Rodeo (formerly known as the Bike Safety Program) will be run outside of the school day by the PTO, the Bike Rodeo Committee and the Winnetka Police Department. It will take place in the Spring.
2022/2023 PTO Bike Rodeo Committee: Kate Van Vlack and Leah Wolff
The Bike Rodeo Committee, together with the Winnetka Police Department, will conduct a bicycle inspection (bike check and helmet fit check) and brief bike safety test (obstacle assessment and street crossing assessment) for all 2nd grade students after school. Children who wish to ride their bikes to school must ride their bike through the bike safety course. If your child demonstrates stable bike riding skills, he/she may begin riding a bike to school. The bike safety test is only for children riding bikes (no scooters or roller bladers please). If your child does not ride a bike for the riding portion of the Bike Rodeo or does not feel secure enough to ride his/her bike to school, he/she may ride a scooter (but not a bike) for the remainder of the year.
