HDWHot Dog Wednesday is back!

What is Hot Dog Wednesday, you ask? Working with the Extreme Outreach Society, we set up a cart in Blanshard Court to serve hot dogs and juice to children and community members, and play all sorts of games with them like skipping, sidewalk chalk, soccer, tag and hide and seek.

It is a great chance to connect with some amazing kids, serve some hot dogs and brush up on your BBQ skills.

We are going next week, May 31. We leave at 2:55 p.m. so you need permission to miss part of your 5th period class. Transportation and a chaperone are provided. Please email Ms. Parker to let her know if you would like to come along!

icanbikeThe Queen Alexandra Hospital iCan Bike camp needs volunteers for their bike riding programs. Since 2007 the program has successfully taught approximately 20,000 people with disabilities to ride a conventional two-wheel bicycle. The impact of learning to ride a bicycle independently is far-reaching!

Approximately 80% of the people who participate in the iCan Bike program ride a two-wheel bicycle independently (at least 75 feet with no assistance) by the end of the five-day program while attending for only 75 minutes each day!
