Bike To School Day

Wednesday, May 9

Students can ride their bikes to school every day if the weather permits. But, Bike to School Day is a special day to promote bike riding and another way to stay fit. 

We are competing with other schools and are hoping our school gets the most bike riders this year!

Let’s dust off those bikes and getting those wheels rolling!

Contact Mrs. Hardwick - PE/Wellness for any questions.


Does Your Child Wish to Bike to School?

Students who wish to bike to school need a bike permit. Parents may choose to allow students in grades 3-5 ride to school alone, but please remember that there are NO crossing guards. Students in grades K-2 must have a PARENT accompany the students on their ride to and from school. Click below for a bike permit application and a more detailed explanation of our bike safety rules.

Prairie Trace Pledge

This Prairie Trace Pledge is recited each morning after the Pledge of Allegiance and the moment of silence. They have the opportunity to receive Leadership Tickets each time they do something that reinforces the pledge. 

I pledge as a Prairie Trace Elementary leader to have a positive attitude each day. I will make good choices even when no one is looking. I will demonstrate habits to make myself and my school an amazing place.
