Frontier School of Innovation launches creative biking program for students


This fall many Kindergarten students at Frontier School of Innovation Elementary got on a bicycle for the very first time. Eric Sharp, FSI Elementary Interventionist, and avid bike rider himself, recognized the need for a complete Kindergarten PE Program, including a fleet of 24 Strider AKB-Specific Bikes, helmets, pedal conversion kits, one Strider 20 Bike for teacher instruction, and curriculum. With the support of “All Kids Bike” and many months of securing donations, Mr. Sharp finally received enough donations to purchase the fleet and equipment.

In mid-September, Mr. Sharp, Mr. Brown (PE Teacher), and Michael H. (2nd grade student), spent a week assembling the bikes, Michael H. assembling most of them! During PE, Kindergarten students spent time learning how to put on a helmet safely, sit on a bike, balance, and walk the bike while sitting.

The excitement and fear in their eyes was exhilarating for all to see. Teachers and administrators were watching from the windows in their classrooms and offices with smiles from ear to ear. Mr. Sharp's next goal is to raise funds to get another 24 bikes that are 20-inch bikes for 2nd and 3rd grade students.   If you're interested in donating, follow this link:
