All Kids Bike® is a national program on a mission to teach every child in America how to ride a bike. They are currently working to bring the All Kids Bike Kindergarten PE Program to Andrus Elementary School. The program equips schools with everything they need to teach children how to ride; teacher training and certification, a structured 8-lesson curriculum, a fleet of Strider® 14x Bikes, Pedal Conversion Kits, fully-adjustable helmets, and a five-year support plan.
Launched in March 2018, there are already 405 schools in 47 states with All Kids Bike Kindergarten PE Programs.
PE Teacher, Angela Rodgers, who applied for the program said, “Andrus Elementary is known for its innovative approach to education. We think outside the box and are always looking for creative ways to engage our students in learning lifelong skills. Learning to ride a bike is a lifelong skill that all students should learn. The earlier they are able to begin this process the more inclined they will be to incorporate this healthy habit into a lifelong activity. Thank for your consideration of our request. We look forward to being a part of this nationwide movement to help kids get healthy for a lifetime.”
The Kindergarten PE Program is designed for children of all abilities and hopes to instill healthy habits at a young age. “One of the best ways to get kids active is to get them excited about bicycles,” says All Kids Bike board member Ryan McFarland, “It’s a skill that is going to serve them in life.”
