Success Stories

Krissy Harmsma , Robert Lake Elementary:

Krissy is a Physical Education Teacher at Lake Elementary and was looking for ways to increase her student’s physical activity.  During the 2017-2018 school year she applied and was awarded our $250 mini grant to promote walking and bicycling.  This grant allowed  her to provide incentives for her students who rode their bikes every Wednesday.  Krissy ‘s “Wheelie Wednesdays” began with just a few riders, but by the end of the 10 week program she had well over 30 students riding.  In addition, Safe Routes to School fitted every student riding with a free helmet.  Thank you Krissy and Mr. Regan for going the extra mile!
