Lincoln Middle School's environmental efforts were recently recognized by Alameda County's Safe Routes to School program which featured Lincoln's participation in International Walk and Roll to School Day in a recent newsletter:
Some students in Alameda celebrated by walking to school with Principal Diane Hale, or rolled with teachers, while others walked and rolled on their own and stopped by an "Energizer Station" to meet up with friends on the way to school.
Before the first bell, the blacktop was hopping with students putting stickers on the mode chart, entering a raffle for exciting prizes like itunes cards and a bike helmet (compliments of Alameda Bicycle.)
Superintendent Kirsten Vital and Planning Commissioner John Knox White were impressed by the number of bicycles - overflow parking was set up on the stage in the gymnasium to accommodate the more than 150 bikes.
Thanks to hardworking parent champion, Olivia Rebanal for excellent planning, preparation and execution of the event, and to Vice Principal, Jonathan Osler, and Mrs.Olsen's Leadership Class for their support!
