Bike to School Week

May 28 - June 1, 2018

From May 28 - June 1, we'll be celebrating all self-propelled commuters: bikers, walkers, scooters, skaters, uni-cyclers... surprise us!

There will be a welcoming party with treats and participation stickers waiting for all self-propelled kids when they arrive at school, rain or shine. Kids are encouraged to form their own groups to come together to school on wheels or on foot. Make it fun!

If your kids wish to ride their bikes to school but need another parent or Hastings rider to meet up with, please contact Sheelagh Davis or Roger Foster and we'll help you out

Friendly Competition and prizes!

We'll tally the number of self-propelled trips that Hastings kids make to school that week and enter them in HUB's B2SW draw for a chance to win prizes!!

For added fun and friendly competition, Hastings Elementary teachers and staff are encouraged to dress/fancy-up their bikes on Friday, May 1. Self-propelled kids will be vote for their favourite fancy bike on Friday morning, and the winning bike will be announced later that morning after all the votes are tallied. The teacher will win a prize (TBD), and their class will win all of the leftover baked goods from the welcome table!

Parents:Healthy and/or tasty baked goods are supplied by B2SW organizers but we'd happily accept contributions from any other benevolent parents. If you're able to do so, please connect with Seth Oldham to arrange for drop-off or pick-up. ** To assist those with allergies or sensitivities, we'd kindly ask bakers to also provide a list of ingredients with any contributed goods.

More information on B2SW can be found on HUB's website at https://bikehub.ca/bike-to-school/bike-to-school-week

Walking School Bus - Latest Update

The survey period for the Walking School Bus pilot project has now closed, but that doesn't mean you can't get involved - we are in the process of creating walking groups and routes, and the sooner you contact us, the more likely it is we can include you in our route planning.

Please fill in this form with your email address, the cross streets closest to your residence and 'best route' as identified here, and the age(s) and grades of the students involved. Please also let us know if you're available to volunteer in some fashion.

The Vancouver Police Department has agreed to provide a pedestrian safety training session for WSB participants at a time and date still to be identified, so please stay tuned for that.

We are working toward #WalkingWednesdays in May and June and will keep you posted.
