Elementary School Assemblies
From March 12th-April 5th, there will be assemblies at each of the elementary schools featuring the Bay Area Children's Theatre. Their production of "Rock the Block: A Walk and Roll Musical" was made in collaboration with Alameda County's Safe Routes to School program featuring singing, dancing, comedy, and lessons about safety walking or biking to and from school! Check in with your school office for more information on dates and times.
The Street Smarts program collaborates with Bike Davis to host Bicycle Rodeos at Davis elementary schools. Bicycle rodeos are a fun and interactive event centered on bike education and skills. The bike education team will begin by checking the mechanical operations of the bicycles and teach a variety of safety tips. This includes hand signals, helmet fittings, and bike laws! There are eight stations, and at each station the education team will go over some bike safety, either a skill or personal bike maintenance. These rodeos will be taking place in the months of April and May, so check in with your school office for dates and times!
On April 8th, Cesar Chavez Elementary School will be hosting a Bike Swap, where visitors can sell their bike, donate it, or buy a used one! Volunteers also are needed to help price bikes during drop-off times and to sell bikes during the event. For more information, contact Jill Bonner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bike a Kid to School Day
Families, couples, students, and others are all welcome to join us on a lovely spring ride to school April 11th! There will be bike trains, and three Davis PD officers to lead children on their safe route to school.
Join us Sunday, May 6th for a cruise around the Davis Bike Loop with special stations, activities, and prizes! Children will be issued a passport as they enter the loop, which they can then have stamped at each of the stations along the way. Those who complete the entire 12-mile loop receive a special certificate at the end. Check out more details about our annual event here!
