Principals on Bikes : Mrs. Ruskowski Rides With The Eastern Express

biz

Last Friday, Mrs. Ruskowski, principal at Eastern Elementary, joined the Eastern Express Bike Train for Bike To School Fridays. Mrs. Ruskowski pedaled to school with 6 of her students as well as 3 N!YC volunteers on a beautiful fall morning. Everyone had a grand time.

The kids were very excited to ride with Mrs. Ruskowski and that got us thinking that other students would probably love to bikes to school with their principal, too.

Principals On Bikes invites all of our TCAPS neighborhood elementary school principals to “Bike To School Friday” with one of our Bike Trains.

NORTE! can help organize/provide quality volunteers to help keep the kids safe.
