Van R. Butler Elementary students recently participated in a bicycle and pedestrian safety lesson as an outgrowth of the University of Florida - FL Safe Routes to School training our district offered to Elementary PE Teachers. They had a great day of learning how to stay safe on bikes and when walking to and from school.
They followed up with approximately 100 students participating in a school "Bike to School Day". Safe Routes to School trainer, Caitlin Cerame, was present and lead a group bike ride to school from Topsail State Park. It was a great day of safe bicycle riding!
