Meet in front of Culver City Middle School
5th Grade Fun Ride: Welcome to CCMS!
Sunday, April 23, 10 a.m.
Join us at one of four locations as we ride together to CCMS. This is a great chance to be introduced to the experience of biking to CCMS. Each location will have trained ride leaders to explain safety and rules of the road. They will ride as a group to the middle school for a bike locking demonstration before heading back to the starting points, taking a different route in either direction. We will hold a raffle at the bike racks when all rides arrive.
All CCUSD elementary schools have walk-bike to school programs and have introduced students to
the essentials of biking to school safely during P.E. Now that they are moving on to middle school they have an opportunity to put all those lessons and knowledge into practice. Biking to school is not only fun but presents opportunities for students to learn essential skills like responsibility, time management and good decision making.
We understand that biking to school can feel a little overwhelming. But with practice your kids will realize how close the school is, how easy it is and how fun it is. Plus as parents, you'll relish knowing your soon-to-be 6th grader is exhibiting good decision making, responsibility and time management sklls. (plus you'll save a bunch of time by doing you part in reducing traffic around CCMS). With over 1600 students at CCMS, the traffic can be overwhelming. Please do your part in reducing traffic and increasing safety by encouraging your kids to bike and walk to school more often.
