Bike to School Week & Bike Day June 4th

Did you know that this week is Bike to School Week at Frankland?  We are keeping track of all the kids who ride, scoot, run or walk to school in the gym!  So ride, scoot, run or walk to school tomorrow and for the rest of the week!  And remember to wear a helmet!

Then on Monday June 4th, the teachers will be organizing a bike rodeo/parade near the end of the day.  So bring your bike or scooter if you can!
