Wow, what a great Bike to School Week! Even with the rain this week Lord Tennyson Elementary School managed to fill all our bike racks everyday and most days the back fence was full with bikes. Our community has a lot to be proud of and many to thank for such a great event.
We had a total of 598 students and staff ride their bikes during bike to school week!
We had lots of students that walked, used transit or rode their scooters signing in everyday as well.
The winning division with the most riders for the week was Division 3, Mme Lapierre with a total of 60 riders. It was a close ride/race between second and third place. Division 12, Mme Simone class had 44 riders for the week coming in second place and third place was Division 10, M. Brian class with 41 riders for the week.
The week started with fresh fruit on Monday graciously donated by Greens Organic + Natural Market.
On Tuesday afternoon two cycling courses were set up on the school field. Even with the rain pouring down on them, numerous students challenged themselves on the bike courses. The students were rewarded with healthy fruit provided by Green’s Organic + Natural Market again, and HUB. PedalHeads was also there giving out bike bells.
On Friday we completed the week with a big celebration bikers' breakfast. Fresh fruit, mini muffins, fresh squeezed juice and coffee were all generously donated by Loblaws City Market (Arbutus and 16th Ave). The best part was that Loblaw’s served up everything so that everyone at Tennyson could enjoy themselves.
Please be sure to thank all these businesses the next time you visit their establishments.
All of this could not have happened without the help of our many parent and student volunteers including:
Amber Ridington Sebastian Ridington

Donalyn Simpson Sebastian Lee
Nana Yenson Abby Yenson
