Again this year, our 5th grade students are involved in bike safety classes that are supported and sponsored by the Bicycle Transportation Alliance and the City of Portland. These classes provide our 5th grade students with a good foundation in bike safety, and for those few students not yet proficient bike riders, an opportunity to learn to ride a bike.
We would like to acknowledge the work of the BTA and our teachers and para-educators for their support of our students.
