3rd Graders Bike to School
Having successfully completed their week long bicycle safety course in PE class, Middlefork third graders are now riding their bicycles to and from school. Please be mindful of our newest "commuters" as you drive throughout Northfield, and do inform us of any safety concerns you might see while on the roads. Safety instructions for students include wearing helmets, as well as walking their bicycles across the street, when crossing parking lot driveways, and when passing through or by a construction area.
