St. Stephens Catholic School held a Bicycle Rodeo last April 28th for children in grades k-2. The event turned out to be a fun and educational opportunity for kids to actively engage in activities that required students to practice using safety skills as well as other important physical skills such as riding in a straight line, coming to a complete stop, and turning. The school received incredible support from outside volunteers and businesses such as Sunlight Bike Shop, the Police Dept., the Fire Dept., and the Kiwanis Club. St. Stephens Catholic School would like to thank all these wonderful volunteer supporters- especially the Kiwanis Club who donated over 35 helmets to children at the school. The Kiwanis Club raises money to buy helmets for children from their famous Ball Race held each year during Glenwood Springs Strawberry Days festival. The school would like to encourage members of our community to support this wonderful club by buying tickets to support them in their efforts of providing all children with safe and proper fitting bicycle helmets.
