Hazelwood Elementary School seeks volunteers for bicycle safety courses

May 6, 2011

By Staff

Hazelwood Elementary School is seeking volunteers to assist in bicycle safety courses this month.

Thanks to a grant from the county, the school received 30 bicycles and helmets for most of the month, as well as a basic curriculum that teaches students to ride safe and smart.

The school’s fourth- and fifth-graders will use the bikes during physical education from 1:30-3:10 p.m. on select days through May 20. The school is seeking two to four volunteers to help students learn to ride and fix helmets, and understand the curriculum.

Students at Hazelwood Elementary School raided their piggy banks to raise more than $5,500 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society during the school’s Pennies for Patients campaign from March 8-28.

The Hazelwood Student Council sponsored the campaign, and the students’ efforts allowed the school to blow past its $2,500 goal.

Lynn Maybee’s fourth-grade class alone raised more than $800, and the students were rewarded with a pasta dinner.
