Milwaukee Schools win cash for encouraging active students!

Today we presented Parkside School for the Arts with their Overall 1st place and Milwaukee Public Schools First place Fire Up Your Feet award check!

Thanks to Ms. Erin Dentice and Ms. Hillman at Parkside for coordinating the tracking  and participation at the school. Big thanks AAA Wisconsin for their support of the program.
The Fire Up Your Feet Challenge this fall was promoted alongside the Walking Wisdom Program, A Wisconsin Bike Fed Pedestrian Safety course, that we taught to all 1st-3rd graders at Parkside.

Nick Jarmusz (AAA), Principal Hillman, Parkside Blue Jay, Erin Dentice and kids receive their check for top school in WI and MPS

The money the school won will go towards making it safer for students and families to walk and bike to school. The Bike Fed staff will meet with students and school staff over the next few weeks to determine what programs or projects will be best suited to put the money towards.
Last week we also presented the check to Siefert School for their winning the Fire Up Your Walk to school award of $300! They will use the money for more gym equipment.
